Listen…Tame Impala have unveiled a New Single Titled ‘Elephant’
The band Tame Impala has unveiled a new single which they have titled ‘Elephant’. You can listen to it by clicking the link below. This is the first single that has been extracted from their forthcoming album titled ‘Lonerism’. The Aussie psych rockers are doing a follow-up to their 2010 album which was called ‘Innerspeaker’.
- The band speaks about their influences: Kevin Parker recently gave an interview in which he described the creative process which the band followed for their forthcoming album. He says that he already feels as if this is the dream album for them. They have concentrated on making something that is both decadent and indulgent at the same time. Restraint is not one of the qualities that they were looking for when they wrote the music.
On the 9th of July the band revealed ‘Apocalypse Dreams’, a download track which gave us a glimpse of what they had in mind all along. We have been able to see the tracklisting for the album and it contains the following numbers:
(‘Be Above It’, ‘Endors Toi’, ‘Apocalypse Dreams’, ‘Mind Mischief’, ‘Music to Walk Home by’, ‘Why Won’t They Talk To Me?’, ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’, ‘Keep on Lying’, ‘Elephant’, ‘She Just Won’t Believe Me’, ‘Nothing That Has Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control’ and ‘Sun’s Coming Up’)
Tame Impala will then return to the UK this October for a series of engagements that end in early November. The live dates begin at the O2 Academy in Brixton (London) on the 30th of October. They will then go to the HMV Ritz in Manchester on the 1st of November. The next day they are at the Sheffield Leadmill before ending the series at the Glasgow ABC on the 3rd of November.

A sneak preview of Tame Impala’s Apocalypse Dream
Many commentators were impressed by ‘Innerspeaker’ or the ideas that the album seemed to espouse. They were effectively playing with the new-psyche to great effect. The Australian group literally came out of nowhere to take on the roles that were traditionally left to other groups such as the Black Angels. Their exuberance ensured that both critics and the general public were always eager to listen to their material.
