If you haven’t heard, Travis Scott has a new album called Astroworld. He’s been in Hawaii, Kanye-style, putting in all the finishing touches, and now the whole project is here to stream. More »
Apple Music/Beats1 host Matt Wilkinson had the chance to sit down with Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker in a recent interview. Chatting about recent collaborations, live performances, and the band’s upcoming album, Wilkinson dives in to give us a picture of the frontman’s post-Currents life.
Parker talks about the possibility of new music from Tame Impala. Without giving too much away, the Australian artist notes that he would be “very disappointed” if there was not a new Tame Impala album out by this time next year. While the details remain hazy, and the direction that the band will take its music unknown, recent collaborations with ZHU, Miguel, and Mark Ronson may suggest a continuation of the accessible yet psychedelic dance-pop sound explored on Currents.
While Kevin Parker’s part-introvert, part-socialite personality allows him to lock himself away in an oceanside cabin to complete a project, it also means he can be a fervent collaborator. He spent time in the studio with SZA recently, and while rumors swirl about a full length project from the pair, he notes that he “can’t really do anything more than hope” that the music will come out, though he suggests that at least one track, titled “Back Together,” would be the most likely to emerge. Parker also speaks on some brief studio time with Travis Scott, though no concrete material seemed to surface from that session. On the other side of the spectrum, the frontman said he would be happy to collaborate with the Arctic Monkey‘s frontman Alex Turner, a pairing that would surely set the indie world on fire. While we haven’t received any new music from Tame Impala today, Kevin Parker’s busy schedule and vast reach in the world of music should have fans of the band looking forward to the next few months.
Kevin Parker guested on Matt Wilkinson’s Beats 1 Radio show and during the interview he hinted that a new Tame Impala record is forthcoming. The album will be the band’s first since 2015’s Currents, and Pitchfork reports that Parker said he will be “very disappointed” if it’s not out next summer. More »
Earlier this year, ZHU and Tame Impala released “My Life,” one of the most anticipated and acclaimed collaborations of 2018. Looking to add even more intrigue to the psychedelic track, the artists have now released a stunning music video featuring none other than Willow Smith.
The video begins with Smith at the scene of a fatal car accident before flashing back to the story of her relationship with the victim. A picturesque tale of two romances unfolds, leading the timeline back to just moments before the crash.
The emotional video comes at the same time as an seven-track remix album for the heartfelt song, featuring Kyle Watson‘s dark house take on the collaboration. Artists like Just A Gent and KRANE each give the song an energetic electronic flair with their remixes, while Klangstof brings a subtle indie vibe into the mix. With a slew of remixes and a powerful video, this new-classic will have some serious staying power for years to come.
A snatch of conversation I heard outside the Pitchfork Music Festival on Friday afternoon: “Oh, I did ketamine yesterday.” “Ooh! How was it?” “Good! Really subtle.” I’m going way out on a limb and guessing that those kids really enjoyed Tame Impala’s headlining set. If you’re discussing horse tranquilizers like a sommelier, Kevin Parker’s dazed … More »
Logic, the woke and nerdy Maryland rapper who claims one of the most fervently devoted audiences in hip-hop and the clout to get Adult Swim icons Rick & Morty on his album, is apparently a big fan of druggy, chilled-out indie-rock festival staples. He’s such a big fan, in fact, that he’s covering his body … More »
When Kanye West’s new album Ye first came out two weeks ago, it was reported that Tame Impala mastermind Kevin Parker had contributed to the track “Ghost Town.” Parker himself only realized that he had made it on onto the album when he seemingly recognized his own work while listening to the album’s More »
Zhu has officially announced phase one of his upcoming “Dune” tour, which kicks off this fall and will be making stops in LA, Brooklyn, Toronto and more. In tangent with the first wave of tour dates, he’s also released part 1 of his upcoming album — and bringing 2.5 tons of sand on the road with him to make for a truly unique live experience. In this case, part 1 is in the form of snippets that serve as background music under a voicemail by manager Jake Udell (who doesn’t seem too happy about the idea of touring with all that sand in the trunk).
Sources say the EP is set to release on April 26th — although they say Zhu himself will not announce it — and tickets will go on sale Friday April 27th. However, fans can get more information on pre-sale tickets in the meantime by texting “dune” to 773-8BL-KLZT (825-5598).
We heard a teaser of this collaboration a few weeks ago when it was first announced. ZHU also dropped it in a set in the land down under this January. Ever since then fans have been ravenous to get their hands on it. The final product is just about as good as it gets, and
