Kevin Parker has announced a new Tame Impala record - his fourth studio album - and dropped a new track.
‘The Slow Rush’ is due out on 14th February on Fiction Records, and is touted as a “deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone”.
The new track is a dynamic, bombastic burst of pungent prog-pop, pulsing on an insistent keyboard groove, punctuated by collisions of overblown drums flaying at the edges, the outward expression of a restless internal funk.
“A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards,” Parker told the New York Times earlier this year. “I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.”
While you’re waiting for the new album to drop in February, tune into the latest track now...
