Tame Impala’s second album Lonerism isn’t out until this Friday, but thanks to Modular you’ll be able to stream it this week on M+N.
The follow-up to 2010 debut Innerspeaker, Lonerism was recorded and produced almost entirely by frontman Kevin Parker in "studios, planes, hotels and homes around the world", and later mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT). It features cover art by collaborator Leif Podhajsky and new single ‘Elephant’, which was recently remixed by legendary producer and musician Todd Rundgren.
In an interview with M+N last year, Parker said Rundgren’s 1973 opus A Wizard, a True Star was a big influence on the making of the record.
Augmented live by POND members Jay Watson and Nick Allbrook, as well as Dominic Simper and Julien Barbagallo, the band are currently touring the country with Parklife. Parker recently flagged a December tour to M+N sister site FasterLouder. “Well, we’ve got this Parklife tour coming up,” he said. “After that, I think we’re touring in December. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say that, but that’s what’s happening.”
Lonerism is out through Modular on October 5. Limited-edition vinyl pre-order here.
