Tame Impala Celebrate 10 Years of “InnerSpeaker” with Release of Unseen Footage
The group announced a 4-LP version of the album and shared a short film.
Since their breakthrough album Currents in 2015, Tame Impala has been a household name. If there’s a festival near you, there’s a good chance they’re going to be in one of the headlining spots. Today, the psych-rock band announce a four-LP reissue of their debut album InnerSpeaker, which was recorded in 2009 in Western Australia at Wave House Studio. The expanded edition of the album includes a collage of album sketches, an unearthed jam, instrumentals, and a 40-page booklet.
If that wasn’t enough to celebrate InnerSpeaker, which has turned 10 years old, the group has also released a short film about the album’s recording. The first few minutes detail the terrifying moments of recording the song “Jeremy’s Storm”—terrifying because there was an actual storm raging at the time. Leader Kevin Parker discusses how they were jamming books in the door to hold it closed, and placing pots and pans all around from roof leaks. A song named after a storm being recording during an actual storm…crazy stuff! He also touches on the importance of jamming with the band while majestically hovering over a soundboard. The film was captured by Matt Sav and edited by Alex Haygarth.
