Tame Impala have unleashed their new material as part of a live performance on American TV show Saturday Night Live.

The band’s frontman, Kevin Parker, once said that he “doesn’t like to play unreleased songs live,” changed his mindset and performed ‘Patience’ and ‘Borderline’ from their upcoming fourth studio album.

Parker’s thoughts on playing new material continued: “The first time people hear it is the kind of recorded glory, like the premeditated thing that I’ve spent two years on – rather than being half-drunk bashing it out on stage, you know, hitting clanger notes and stuff.”

Despite that, the band crashed through the new material as their record is supposedly penciled in for a summer release.

For now though, enjoy the performance:
