Earlier this week Tame Impala officially announced his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush set for release February 14 via Interscope. He also shared the album track, “It Might Be Time,” which follows the previously released album track, “Borderline” and another single “Patience.”
The Slow Rush is Parker’s deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone, it’s a paean to creation and destruction and the unending cycle of life. Parker told the New York Times earlier this year, “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.” The album cover was created in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and features a symbol of humanity all but swallowed whole by the surrounding environment, as though in the blink of an eye.
In March Tame Impala performed “Patience” and “Borderline” on Saturday Night Live. The last six months have seen Tame Impala headline multiple major festivals including Coachella, Primavera, Lollapalooza, ACL and more. He also sold out arenas around the world including two nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
