Wouldn’t a floating trip through a volcano of every color in the visible spectrum be the perfect start to 2020? It’s a new decade in a few months and it provides the perfect opportunity for reinvention, wellness, and experimentation involving the limits of the mind. It’s good news that Tame Impala‘s providing a ticket for this brain-altering journey with the announcement of a new album, The Slow Rush, set drop next year. It’s been seventeen decades since the band dropped Currents in 2015. The time for their comeback is right around the corner.
Tame Impala stoked the fires of hope a couple of days ago with a clip of frontman Kevin Parker in the studio, cooking up something special. Later that night, the band put an extended video on their website. Then, with the recent confirmation, everything makes sense. Singles like “Borderline” and “Patience” that came out this year weren’t just random releases; they are calculated steps and pieces of something grander, stranger, and spookier. For the full picture, we’ll have to wait until next year.
Tame Impala headlined at Coachella earlier this year. In March, they gave a stunning visual performance of “Borderline” in its live debut on Saturday Night Live.
