Who knew Alaskan band Portugual. The Man were such big fans of Yeezus?
The band posted an explanation on their SoundCloud page:
“We saw that Ryan Adams covered Taylor Swift’s 1989 so we decided to go ahead and cover something good. Kanye is playing 808s & Heartbreak at Hollywood Bowl tonight, if we were not in Marfa playing El Cosmico – Trans-Pescos Festival we would be there, one of our all time favorite records. Here is…”Amazing.'”
Portugal. The Man are currently readying their forthcoming new album, which may have appearances by Mike D of the Beastie Boys and Mac Miller. Take a listen to their eclectic take on “Amazing” below.
