Kevin Parker and Theophilus London share new song ‘Whiplash’

We brought you the news that Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and Theophilus London had worked together to form the playfully titled Theo Impala, with a view to relasing new music. It seems the day has come as the pair premiered a new track ‘Whiplash’ on Beats 1 radio this week.

The pair gave Virgil Abloh’s new show ‘Televised Radio’ the first play of collaborative effort ‘Whiplash’ having previously given us a taster of the song in 2016. You can hear that on the fully-archived episode at around the 52-minute mark.

They went one further and also shared the cover of Steve Monite’s 1984 song ‘Only You’ which can also be heard on the same episode at around the 55-minute mark.

The pair played a show last week in Los Angeles with London following-up the gig with a (since deleted) instagram post suggesting a new video would be out “soon”. London also tweeted that the new tunes written with Parker will appear on his upcoming album BeBey.
