Tame Impala have surprised fans with a teaser clip of what will be the band’s eagerly anticipated new material.
Frontman Kevin Parker has already provided an update on the new Tame Impala album, saying “I like to think that the album is its own thing,” before adding “I wouldn’t want in 20 years to be listening to an album I made now and think that I finished it for any deadline or any particular reason. It was finished because it was finished.”
“Anticipation is good… I want to be the kind of artist that feels empowered by people waiting to hear what I’ve got.”
Now though, that anticipation is building further as the band release a mysterious clip via their social media channels which has whipped fans up into a frenzy.
Here it is:
