Earlier this week, Tame Impala celebrated the one-year anniversary of Currents, the band’s third studio effort, which has propelled the Perth outfit and project leader Kevin Parker even further into the stratosphere.

The album was released to near-universal critical acclaim, with many hailing it as one of the best albums of the year and an instant modern classic, praising Parker’s songwriting, production, and mixing on the hazy, reflective work.

Reflecting on one year since the album was released, Parker took to Instagram to share his thoughts on the record and even happened to reveal that a deluxe edition of the album is on its way and will feature Currents B-sides.

“1 year since this album was released!” he wrote, sharing the sprawling artwork for the album. “Feels like a lifetime ago but also like it was yesterday at the same time.”

“Needless to say i didn’t predict the effect it would have on my life… and other peoples too it seems…. Endless thank you to everyone who got onboard. PS. Deluxe + B sides in the works! Stay tuned.”

The album has certainly had a considerable impact. Just ask the members of The Last Shadow Puppets, who are such big fans of the band they even improvised a song about them during their set at Poland’s Open’er Festival.
