It’s looking like a big announcement could soon be on the way from Tame Impala, with the group updating their website with a mysterious video overnight.
Earlier this year, Tame Impala returned to Aussie stages with a performance at Splendour In The Grass. A powerhouse display of professionalism and psychedelia, the show took place just four years after the release of their latest album, Currents.
Since its release, Kevin Parker has found himself to be a rather in-demand musician, headlining festivals and working with some of the biggest names on the scene.
New music hasn’t been a foreign concept though, with a collector’s edition of Currents offering up the single ‘List Of People (To Try And Forget About)’, before this year brought with it ‘Patience’ and ‘Borderline’.
Now, it appears as though there might be movement on the Tame Impala front, with the band’s website teasing something with a mysterious video.

As Consequence Of Sound points out, a visit over to the Tame Impala website results in folks being met with a rather intriguing new video.

Featuring footage of Kevin Parker in the studio, the clip is punctuated with shots of a steadily overactive oscilloscope as rising static soundtracks the whole piece. Clips are repeated and reused, before eventually ending with a serene shot of Parker on the beach.
While it gives us absolutely no clue as to what’s on the way, fans soon began to speculate what the clip could mean, with one fan assuming Parker’s nine presses to the reel to reel player could mean that nine tracks are present on the forthcoming record.
Of course, a new album announcement would be rather fitting, considering Parker had explained last year 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.”
Whatever the case, it looks like we’ll have to wait and see what Kevin Parker has up his sleeves. Here’s hoping it results in more music and long-awaited headline shows!
