After what feels like months of teasing and murmurs, Tame Impala have finally announced their new album. The Slow Rush is set for release in 2020.
The band announced the album through a video posted on their website. The 90-second teaser features footage of Kevin Parker in the studio, backed by what we assume to be new music.
Tame Impala released their last record, Currents, in 2015. This year, the band blessed us with two sublime singles, ‘Borderline’ and ‘Patience’.

Listen: ‘Borderline’ – Tame Impala
Last year, Kevin Parker revealed that he would be “really disappointed if we didn’t have something out by” mid-2019.
“I’m always working, I’m pretty certain now that another Tame Impala album is my main priority, definitely,” he stated. “I think now I’ve felt that calling. It’s like a calling from beyond.
“I love playing the songs live, I love playing Currents songs I love playing Lonerism songs and everything but I think I’m ready to play some other songs live.”
If ‘Borderline’ and ‘Patience’ are anything to go off, the record is going to be well worth the wait. I for one am absolutely thrilled at the concept of ushering in a new decade to the sweet sounds of Tame Impala.
