Tame Impala have shared a special “imaginary place” mix of their latest studio album, The Slow Rush, to help fans get through self-isolation.
The almost hour-long clip features all 12 tracks that appear on the band’s new record. Each song has been muffled and edited to make it sound as though it’s being played from another room. You can check the “Imaginary Place” remix below, with the band suggesting fans are best to wear headphones to absorb the music.
“I made something for all you isolators out there,” Kevin Parker tweeted earlier today (31 March). “I call it The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place.” He also recommended that listeners wear headphones in order to enjoy the mix in its “full immersive effect”.
Tame Impala released The Slow Rush, the highly anticipated follow-up to their 2015 album Currents, in February. The record received a series of glowing reviews, with the NME dubbing it a “57-minute flex of every musical muscle in Kevin Parker’s body”.
Earlier this month, Tame Impala covered Lady Gaga’s 2016 single ‘Perfect Illusion’ on the opening night of their ‘The Slow Rush’ tour. The song was co-written by Kevin Parker for the pop star’s fifth album Joanne.
Tame Impala have rescheduled several of their upcoming tour dates to later in 2020 over the coronavirus concerns. The Australian band were set to play their biggest homecoming shows in April but have postponed the shows to December this year. Tickets that have already been purchased will be valid for the rescheduled shows in their respective locations. In Melbourne, tickets for the April 23 show will be valid for the 13 December performance and 24 April tickets will be valid for the 14 December concert.
The tour promoters have also noted support act Khruangbin will be unable to join Tame Impala on the road for the rescheduled dates, with a new support act to be announced in the near future.
