Tame Impala have shared an official acoustic version of ‘On Track’ taken from their acclaimed album The Slow Rush.
This official version is the second time that Kevin Parker has performed a stripped-back version of the number after he performed a similar version in April as part of the Music From The Home Front benefit concert. The event saw Australian artists band together to raise funds for coronavirus relief.
This comes after Parker shared another altered version of a track from The Slow Rush when he remixed One More Year and transformed it into an 18-minute Balearic house juggernaut.
The lead singer, who recently made an appearance on Rick Rubin’s Broken Record podcast to talk about the band’s origin and talk about his creative process in immense detail, divulged: “It’s like flicking on the radio… [when you flick on the radio] it’s not like starting the song. It’s like coming in halfway through a chorus. And then I do my best to get to a place where I can record it, before I forget it… It’ll be like two bar, or a one bar piece of music.”
He went on to add: “The only thing that I’ve noticed as a pattern… is going from a loud place or a place with a lot of energy to stepping outside… going from lots of shit going on and thinking to suddenly nothing and then my brain has to find some way to fill that void.”
For now though, listen to the acoustic version below.
