Psych frontman says 'there's a good 36 hours after we played that is unaccounted for'
Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker has described his Glastonbury Festival experience, claiming in a new interview that there’s a 36 hour gap in his memory of what happened over the course of the weekend.
The Aussie band played the festival’s biggest stage, the Pyramid Stage, on the Saturday leg (June 25), right before headliner Adele.
Speaking to Q Magazine about his band’s time at Glasto, Parker recalled: “We got there on Friday afternoon and were there until Monday morning. I’m still paying the price.”
“There’s a good 36 hours after we played that is unaccounted for,” he added. “I suddenly came to and it was Monday morning. Mark Ronson is sending me photos of me at various times and I’m slowly piecing together where I was and what I was doing. Part of my method is searching ‘#KevinParker’ on the internet and finding all the fan photos of me just like [makes popping sound].”
“Did I go and see Adele after us? We’re entering into hazy territory here… We got off the stage and there were five bottles of Moët waiting for us. Monday morning was not good.”
Tame Impala’s most recent album, ‘Currents’, which came out on July 17 last year, is set to be re-released.
Parker has revealed that a deluxe edition of the album that’s in the works. Parker teased the news in an Instagram post, which also included the news that the deluxe edition of ‘Currents’ will include B-sides.
In the Instagram post, Parker wrote: “1 year since this album was released! Feels like a lifetime ago but also like it was yesterday at the same time. Needless to say I didn’t predict the effect it would have on my life… and other peoples too it seems…. Endless thank you to everyone who got onboard.”
