Tame Impala released two songs "Patience" and "Borderline" way back in March and April. Seems like a past life. If you had told me it was actually in January I would've believed you. They weren't like promo tracks for a movie soundtrack where no album is expected to support the tracks. Nope. Just two new songs for world to hear in early 2019. A new album in the same calendar year would've seemed like a pretty safe bet. When they did SNL it felt inevitable. I guess "Patience" was just Kevin Parker foreshadowing? Now it's basically November and there is finally news thanks to Tame Impala's IG.
After some perfectionism and overall weirdness the news is finally out. New Tame Valentine's Day 2020. While I'm a little disappointed it's so far from now, I guess it'll be cool to have something to look forward to after the Patriots win the Super Bowl again. I think it'll be Seattle.
You're about to get some Tama Impala references fucking Horatio Cain'd down your throat here so I suggest you just throw on your shades and Let It Happen.
Kevin Parker finally made up his mind on a release date. I guess a 2019 release was not meant to be. Life is moving, can't you see? Well let me tell you this...The Moment this album is available, cause I'm a Man, I'll Eventually get around to buying it.
Although Parker added another trimester of wait time, at least we now have a due date. February 14th, 2020. Valentine's Day. The jokes right themselves, but I'll Be Above it.
I mean, bravo, dozo.
A third track off of The Slow Rush was released today coinciding with the album news entitled "It Might Be Time".
It's a bummer the new album is not going to be released for another 108 days I'm beyond excited to know it's actually coming. Tame Impala is one of favorite bands and when I start releasing the "Best of 2010's" line of blogs in the upcoming weeks you'll be seeing plenty of them. There was a brief period in time where I was like maybe Kevin Parker was just going to do samples for Theophilus London and chill. Great to see he intends on making music for us until he dies. Hopefully that is long after I'm gone.
P.S. Like all blogs I was on giphy looking for gifs (obviously) be careful around Tame Impala gifs. It's a web you can get stuck in for hours if you're not careful.
