Song is taken from band's recent album 'Currents'
Tame Impala have shared a clip for their song ‘The Less I Know The Better’.
The song features on the band’s recent album ‘Currents’, with the video following the story of a high school basketball player whose girlfriend leaves him for his team’s gorilla mascot named Trevor. Watch below.
Meanwhile, Tame Impala were among the winners at the ARIA Awards on Thursday night (November 26). The award ceremony celebrating the Australian recording industry was held in Sydney. Tame Impala went home with three awards, including Best Group, Album of The Year and Best Rock Album.
The band’s latest album ‘Currents’ was released in July, reaching Number Three in the UK Albums Chart and Number Four in the US. It topped the charts in the band’s home country of Australia.
Parker recently went on record to say that he didn’t mind fans downloading his music for free.
“There are some CDs I saved up for months to buy when I was doing a paper round, I’d literally spend two months saving up to buy a CD,” Parker said on BBC 6 Music when talking about his early experience of buying music. “But then later in life my friend would burn me a CD that he’d downloaded illegally and it was just as much of a powerful experience, even though the sound quality was kind of crappy.”
He continued: “For me that shows that it’s not really how much you pay for it or even whether or not it’s physical, it can still have an effect on you. I’m not sure what that says about artists making money in the future. Obviously artists need to make money but I also believe that if you do something good the wealth will find you some way.”
“If music was free I think it changes the experience but it doesn’t necessarily cheapen it. It doesn’t make it any less profound.
“I used to download music illegally, everyone has. Nobody is innocent. If someone says ‘I love your album but I downloaded it for free’ then good! I don’t want his 20 bucks.”
Tame Impala will play a handful of UK dates next year, with two shows at London’s Alexandra Palace and one at the Manchester Arena.
