Australia’s own musical architect, Kevin Parker, returns with Tame Impala’s first new music since their 2015 LP, Currents
‘Patience’ was teased and only announced one hour prior to the release – leaving fans in nothing but excitement. The song merges their usual psychedelic astral-rock roots with a playful, summer-in-the-80’s vibe.
The new single has come after a long four years of hiatus, marking the longest stretch of time between any of Tame Impala’s previous albums. In the meantime, Parker has collaborated with artists like Mark Ronson, Theophilus London, Travis Scott, and more.
Tame Impala are also set to tour and headline huge festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza this year – which possibly hints a full-length album coming our way. They are also scheduled to be on Saturday Night Live (SNL) as musical guests next week – a platform where artists usually debut new music.
Listen to ‘Patience’ below. It is also available on all streaming services.
