Australian radio station Triple J had fellow Aussies Tame Impala stop by to take part in their "Like A Version" series, in which artists cover other artist's songs live in their studio. Tame Impala's interesting choice was the Andre 3000 penned "Prototype" off of Outkast's 2003 "split" album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below. Check out the boy's soulful take on the tune below:
