Tame Impala, one of the greatest contemporary psychedelic rock bands of a generation, is headed up by incredibly talented frontman Kevin Parker. Now, after much speculation, Tame Impala (namely Kevin Parker) has announced the group’s long-awaited fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, due in 2020. The full-length LP marks the band’s first in more than four years.
Tame Impala’s most recent album, Currents, was released back in 2015. They’ve made a few little come backs here and there over the years, most recently in April with their newest track, “Borderline.” In addition, the band made a headlining appearance at Coachella alongside electronic fan-favorites like Bassnectar, CloZee, and Rüfüs Du Sol. After receiving such widespread fan praise in the early part of 2019, the boys embarked on a rather massive world tour, hitting every city from Barcelona, France, and London, to select cities in the US.
A new cryptic clip posted on Tame Impala’s official website hinted at the album’s title as it follows Parker in the studio. A longer teaser video then made its way to the band’s Instagram, revealing the forthcoming album’s release date on Valentine’s Day 2020. The teaser also contains snippets of Parker working on new music presumably from the LP, alongside tour footage from this year’s show dates.
Whether or not singles “Patience” and “Borderline” will appear on the album’s official tracklist is still unknown, although fans are certainly crooning for more releases.
