Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) will release his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush on 14 February through Interscope Records and today he releases the single, ‘Lost In Yesterday’, which you can check out below.
‘Lost In Yesterday’ is a deep dive into the addictive nature of nostalgia propelled by loopy, driving disco. An examination of time’s distorting effect on memories, on ‘Lost In Yesterday’ Parker realizes that even the most disdainful times can take on a rosy tinge the further they recede in the rearview. Looking back can be a tough habit to break, but the track’s compulsive bassline, sprinkles of electronic stardust and chorus catharsis ensure the focus is firmly on the future.
To date Parker has shared 3 tracks off The Slow Rush in addition to ‘Lost In Yesterday,’ including ‘Posthumous Forgiveness,’ “It Might Be Time,” and, ‘Borderline.’ The Slow Rush was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle, Australia.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Tame Impala will headline Bonnaroo on Sunday, 14 June. Late last year, meanwhile, Parker announced a full North American tour with support from Perfume Genius. The tour kicks off with the previously announced date of March 9 at San Diego’s Pechanga Arena and concludes August 7 at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. The dates include two nights at The Forum in Los Angeles on March 10 (sold-out) and 11. Clario and MGMT will support on previously announced March dates in California and Mexico, and Perfume Genius will support the full North American tour beginning in May. Visit the artist’s official website for tickets and further information on all Tame Impala’s forthcoming dates.
Tame Impala’s last album, Currents (Interscope) was released in 2015 earning him a second Grammy nomination, RIAA Gold-certification and word-wide critical acclaim. The New York Times labelled it a “a tour de force” and Pitchfork said, “nearly every proper song on ‘Currents’ is a revelatory statement of Parker’s range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala.” NPR noted, “[Parker] advocates for constant reinvention… That commitment to evolution helps make Tame Impala an unlikely but worthy candidate for major stardom.”
