Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker remixes track by bandmate’s side project GUM – listen

Singer puts his magic touch to 'Anesthetized Lesson'

Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker has remixed a track by his bandmate Jay Watson’s side project GUM.

The singer has put his own spin on the track ‘Anesthetized Lesson’ which featured on Watson’s 2015 album ‘Glamourous Damage’.

“While I was recording the album I was listening to a lot of dance music and while it was a big influence, my mixing of the album didn’t really reflect that,” said Watson in a statement. “When Kev offered to do a remix of ‘Anesthetized Lesson’ I jumped at the chance because I knew he could make it sound wild. He didn’t let me down.”

You can listen to Parker’s remix below.  

The band previously remixed Miguel’s song ‘Waves’ which was part of his ‘Rogue Waves EP’. A collection of remixes to his ‘Wildheart’ track ‘Waves’, the EP featured versions of the songs with guests Travis Scott and Kacey Musgraves plus a solo “Joshua Tree” version of the song.

Miguel released his latest album ‘Wildheart’ in June of last year, also collaborating with Disclosure during 2015 on their second album ‘Caracal’.

Tame Impala’s frontman recently told NME in a video you can watch below, he was hopeful of working with Rihanna in the future after she sampled one of the band’s songs on her latest album, ‘Anti’.

‘Anti’, released in January, features ‘Same Ol’ Mistakes’, a reworking of the Australian band’s ‘New Person, Same Old Mistakes’, which closed their 2015 album ‘Currents’.

Asked if there were plans for another team-up between the acts, Parker replied: “I don’t know about that, hopefully. I’d love to do something [with Rihanna] in the future. It’s just one of those things.”
