Tame Impala have shared a special “Imaginary Place” mix of their latest studio album “The Slow Rush” to help fans isolate themselves.
The almost one-hour clip contains all 12 tracks that appear on the band’s new record. Each song has been muffled and edited to make it sound like it was played in a different room.
“I did something for all the isolators out there,” said Kevin Parker tweeted earlier today (March 31). “I call it the slow rush in an imaginary place.” He also recommended that listeners wear headphones to enjoy the mix in its “full immersive effect”
Check out the mix below:
Tame Impala released “The Slow Rush” in early February, the highly anticipated sequel to their 2015 album “Currents”. The record received a glowing four-star rating from NMEThomas Smith, who called the album “57 minute flex of every musical muscle in Kevin Parker’s body”.
Smith added: “Tame Impala is unlikely to lose fans if he picks up Parker’s pop sensibility – genres are history, man – but you have to admire their wanton desire to break new ground.”
Earlier this month, Tame Impala reported on Lady Gaga’s single “Perfect Illusion” from 2016 on the opening night of her “The Slow Rush” tour. The song was co-written by Parker for the fifth album of pop star “Joanne”.
Tame Impala has postponed some of its upcoming tour dates to later in 2020 due to coronavirus concerns. The Australian band was scheduled to play their biggest homecoming shows in April, but has postponed the shows until December this year.
