Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker has announced details for a special 10th-anniversary box set of his iconic debut album Innerspeaker.
Although the album turned 10 earlier in 2020 the commemorative boxset won’t actually be released until March 2021 but it’s the thought that counts. Parker has revealed details of an expanded deluxe edition of the album, which will include new mixes of the tracks ‘Alter Ego’ and ‘Runway, Houses, City, Clouds’ as well as instrumentals, demos, and fans will also be able to hear previously unreleased side-long recording called ‘Wave House Live Jam’.
The release also features a collage of album sketches, a deluxe 40-page booklet of ‘Innerspeaker’ artwork and a series of instrumentals. Back in August, Kevin Parker treated himself to the purchase of the beautiful Australian studio and house where he recorded the album which the boxset is celebrating, which is also the same studio where he recorded 2015 effort Currents.
The four-bedroom structure is located in Yallingup, Western Australia, situated on 50-acres of land, with views overlooking the Indian Ocean and vast Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. Parker has got himself a cut-price deal on the house which was originally listed for AUD$3.75million in June.
The house was built in the 1980s by US music producer Ken Eichenberg and the property has welcomed artists such as The Waifs, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Fatboy Slim and the Beastie Boys through its doors through the years. As well as an in-house studio, the property also boasts an amphitheatre which can hold up to 300 people.
Last week saw Parker and Tame Impala swing by the BBC Radio 1 studio to deliver a special rendition of Nelly Furtado song ‘Say It Right’. Stepping back to 2006, Parker and the three-piece band recorded an entire live set from their hometown of Perth, Australia, as part of a new live session with radio host Annie Mac as the group continues to level up their online live streaming performances as part of the health crisis lockdown.
