Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker has teamed up with Sepatu Compass to launch a limited edition shoe collection.
Sepatu Compass and Tame Impala’s new shoe collaboration, titled Artificial Vibration, is made up of three different types of trainers that represent a different Tame Impala song.
The first is a retrograde low shoe with a waveform pattern to represent “The Less I Know The Better,” while the other two designs are retrograde hi decons, one of which is a tie-dye pattern for “Yes I’m Changing,” and the third is a spectogram print for “Lost In Yesterday.” All three shoe types feature a tongue that can hold wireless headphones.
Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker wrote on Instagram, “Hey Indonesia, I’m honoured to announce this very special colab with Sepatu Compass , where they transformed my music into graphics! Super cool idea. Very limited run. Hope you manage to grab some x”.
On March 7, Tame Impala hit the road for a run of headline arena dates that conclude with another festival appearance at the Buku Music + Art Project in New Orleans, LA on March 25. The tour also hits the Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival, Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on March 9 and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on March 14. Tickets are on sale now.
Tame Impala also recently shared “No Choice,” a track off the forthcoming The Slow Rush Deluxe Box Set which will be released on February 18, 2022 via Interscope.
The box set features B-Sides and remixes of his GRAMMY-nominated 2020 album. The physical version will feature two transparent red LP’s and alternate artwork including a 40-page booklet and The Slow Rush 2050 calendar. Both the physical and digital versions released on February 18 will feature another never-before-heard b-side “The Boat I Row,” the pre-album single “Patience” (both original and remix), plus additional extended versions and remixes.
