An eight-minute live monster from the awarding-winning Australians
Tame Impala have released a new recording of ‘Let It Happen’, a Deezer Session video recorded in front of a mirrored monument in Paris.
The Aussies are fresh from winning three titles at the Sydney-based ARIA Awards, where they took home Best Group, Album of The Year and Best Rock Album for their third album ‘Currents.’
NME described ‘Currents’ as “an expansive third album that swaps fuzzy guitars for full-bodied bass and vivid synths,” adding that Let It Happen’ is “eight transcendent minutes of shifting, zen-like disco that find Kevin Parker telling himself to go with the flow and accept change.”

Tame Impala shared the latest video from third album currents, ‘The Less I Know The Better’, in late November, with ‘Currents’ released in July of this year. They also recently covered Kylie’s ‘Confide In Me’.
Parker recently also 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.”
Tame Impala play three sizeable UK dates in February, as follows:
Manchester Arena (February 11)
London Alexandra Palace (12, 13)
