TAME IMPALA RELEASE SINGLE “LOST IN YESTERDAY”

Jan 8, 2020

By Bella Carles

Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) will release his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush on February 14 (Interscope), and today he releases the single, “Lost In Yesterday.” “Lost In Yesterday,” is a deep dive into the addictive nature of nostalgia propelled by loopy, driving disco. An examination of time’s distorting effect on memories, on “Lost In Yesterday,” Parker realizes that even the most disdainful times can take on a rosy tinge the further they recede in the rearview. Looking back can be a tough habit to break, but the track’s compulsive bassline, sprinkles of electronic stardust and chorus catharsis ensure the focus is firmly on the future.

To date Parker has shared 3 tracks off The Slow Rush in addition to “Lost In Yesterday,” including “Posthumous Forgiveness,” “It Might Be Time,” and, “Borderline.” The Slow Rush was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle, Australia. The twelve tracks were recorded, produced and mixed by Parker. Fans can pre-order The Slow Rush at tameimpala.com and all major retailers, or with a ticket purchase for any of the North American tour dates. Digital pre-orders will receive the released album tracks instantly. The Slow Rush will also be printed in 4 heavyweight double-disc vinyl formats – standard black, forest green (Limited Edition – all retailers), red/blue (indie-retail exclusive) and splatter (Tame Impala webstore exclusive).

The Slow Rush is Parker’s deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone, it’s a paean to creation and destruction and the unending cycle of life. Parker told the New York Times earlier this year, “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.” The album cover was created in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and features a symbol of humanity all but swallowed whole by the surrounding environment, as though in the blink of an eye.

This week it was announced that Tame Impala will headline Bonnaroo on Sunday, June 14th. Late last year Tame Impala announced a full North American tour with support from Perfume Genius. The tour kicks off with the previously announced date of March 9 at San Diego’s Pechanga Arena and concludes August 7 at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. The dates include two nights at The Forum in Los Angeles on March 10 (sold-out) and 11. Clario and MGMT will support previously announced March dates in California and Mexico, and Perfume Genius will support the full North American tour beginning in May. Tickets are on sale now.
