Tame Impala has released a brand new single titled “Lost In Yesterday”, which serves as 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,” Kevin 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.
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 on 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.
To date, the band has shared three 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 four heavyweight double disc vinyl formats – standard black, forest green (Limited Edition – all retailers), red/blue (indie retail exclusive) and splatter (Tame Impala webstore exclusive).
