Two weeks out of the release of the fourth album The Slow Rush, Tame Impala has shared a new film clip for single ‘Lost In Yesterday‘.
Aside from an album teaser video, the film clip is the first fans have seen from Tame Impala in four years.
The video sees Parker continue to embrace a retro-futurist aesthetic.
Here Tame Impala‘s mastermind acting as the wedding singer at reception which doesn’t end all that well.
Notably absent are the members of the Tame Impala live band, their role instead played by stand-in actors, one of which delivers a particularly vigorous guitar solo.
“I stopped being afraid of people thinking my music was bad,” Parker said of his new album in a recent interview with MR PORTER. “I know everyone was expecting a follow-up album and that made my inner teenage rebel come out and say, ‘Fuck you. I’m not doing it.”
“Not everyone is going to like this album,” he continues, “because of stylistic choices. I’ve lost fans with past albums, but I wouldn’t want the same group of fans for my entire career. You wouldn’t grow.”
“I want to elicit love or hate,” he adds. “I think it was Kanye West who said people loving you was the same as people hating you.”
Parker collaborated with Kanye on the 2018 album Ye and recently likened West to a modern-day equivalent of The Doors‘ own problematic frontman, Jim Morrison.
Ending a five-year wait for a new Tame Impala album since 2015’s Currents, The Slow Rush will arrive Valentine’s Day, February 14.
