Tame Impala Album Teaser

Your first look at the cosmic follow-up to 2010's 'Innerspeaker'.

You've heard they're playing Parklife this year, and now you can hear a cheeky smidgen of the new album from Tame Impala— and, by the sounds of things, it's one cosmic affair. The new album (which is set for release this October on Modular) was recorded in a tiny Paris apartment, fueled only by a passion to make awesome auditory tunes, and by croissants. While the latter inspiration can't be verified, it is definitely true that the French atmosphere acted as a muse of sorts, considering one of the album's songs is named 'Un, Deux, Trois'. The boys also easily take home the longest-song-title award, for the album's 'Nothing That Has Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control'. 

Anyways, what can fans expect from the second LP? Front man Kevin Parker recently talked to Triple J mag about the album's playful qualities, saying, "It's quite a childish album, almost like a persona who turns into the one from Innerspeaker," also adding that sonically, the release is a little "futuristic, apocalyptic motown."  Not only is this a heaps promising description, but the teaser itself makes the August release date (of the first single) look totally worth the wait.
