LISTEN: Tame Impala Return With New, Eight-Minute Track “Let It Happen,” Announce Tour

The return of the Aussie psych-lords includes a new record in 2015.

Tame Impala have released a new track called “Let It Happen,” their first new material since 2012’s Lonerism. Following the band’s trend of favoring analogue synths over guitar-dominated psych-rock, Kevin Parker’s watery-smooth vocals may also have you thinking that the band’s new album (coming in 2015, release date and title TBD) will be the hottest R&B record of 2015. But, at almost eight minutes in length, “Let It Happen” retains Tame Impala’s jam-band spirit of exploration.  You can download “Let it Happen” from the band’s website.

Along with the new track, Tame Impala also announced a schedule of touring this spring, starting with Coachella and taking them through the summer months to the Governors Ball Festival in New York. See the full list of dates below.
