The followup to Currents arrives February 14th, 2020.
It’s official, Tame Impala is back. After sharing a cryptic video to their website last week Tame Impala have announced their new album, The Slow Rush, due out next year on Valentine’s Day, February 14th, via Interscope/Fiction. In addition, Kevin Parker and company shared a new song this morning, “It Might Be Time,” marking Tame Impala’s third release of the year following “Borderline” and “Patience.”
Parker also stopped by Beats 1 to give an interview with Zane Lowe in which he shared some details about the new album. He recorded The Slow Rush between Los Angeles and his hometown of Fremantle, Australia. Parker recorded, produced, and mixed the album’s 12 tracks himself and the album will include the previously released “Borderline” but not “Patience.”
Here’s a bit of the press release focusing on “It Might Be Time”:
“‘It Might Be Time’ is your paranoid shadow snapping at your Achilles heel. It’s the horrifying idea that your mojo’s gone out for a walk and it may not be coming back. It’s second guessing yourself, wondering ‘have I still got it? Did I ever??’ Your paranoid inner observer taunting you in your own denial, telling you to wake up and accept your salad days are over. A dynamic, bombastic burst of pungent prog-pop, ‘It Might Be Time’ pulses on an insistent keyboard groove, punctuated by collisions of overblown drums flaying at the edges, the outward expression of a restless internal funk. A heady psych bomb threatening to implode, ‘It Might Be Time’ is potent Tame Impala 2020.”
