Tame Impala Premieres New Song “It Might Be Time” on Apple Beats 1
- Australian psychedelic music project Tame Impala announced their fourth studio album “The Slow Rush” will be released on on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.
On October 28th, the band premiered a new song “It Might Be Time” from the album on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show.
“I love those kind of like, Supertramp melodies, kind of seventies prog, emotional things,” Kevin Parker told Zane Lowe about the track. “But I also love extremely distorted, bombastic blown out drums, you know? And I feel like I haven’t done a song in a long time where the drums are just like, the main feature, you know, where it just like does explosions in drum form. Well it’s my love, you know, drum sounds. Across like all music, like whether it’s… the music that I’m listening to, you know, whether it’s like, rock and roll or hip-hop or whatever, the drums are just the thing that I love the most., I never expect other people to care about drums as much as I do, so I don’t always put them at the forefront of my music, but this time I was just like, good.”
The new album will feature 12 tracks recorded in Los Angeles and in Parker’s hometown of Fremantle, Australia.
“I guess I just wait patiently so that the vinyl factories to do their thing. I have had so many conversations with my record label and the management and stuff. It’s like, you know, in contrast to like, [Kanye West’s new album] ‘Jesus is King‘. You know when it came out, like what, eight hours after they were finished working on it? So it’s like, I’ll have those conversations, everyone like, ‘Why can’t we do it like that?’ You know?
Because I would give anything, I would give anything to be able to release the album that soon after I’m finished it. You know? As would any artist. Any artist would just be like, oh my God, all they want to do when they finish it is have people hear it, you know? Like there and then, so like the four month waiting thing or whatever it is.”
