The Perth band release third album 'Currents' in July
Tame Impala have shared a new video for their track ”Cause I’m A Man’, starring an array of puppets.
The Australian band release third album ‘Currents’ on July 17 via Fiction, following on from 2012’s ‘Lonerism’ and 2010 debut ‘Innerspeaker’. Having already unveiled a 3D video for their album’s lead single, the group have now also issued a ‘live video’ for ”Cause I’m A Man’, featuring puppet versions of themselves playing along to the song. Watch below.
Frontman Kevin Parker recently spoke to NME about the dance-leaning LP, saying, “I wanted to make something that from the sound of it could be down at the club. I just realised that I’d never heard Tame Impala played somewhere with a dancefloor or where people were dancing.”
“Listening to [our music] was very much a kind of headphone, solitary experience,” Parker added. “Which is cool, but I’ve moved on from that. I’ve always loved listening to music on my own, but there’s another side of me that is just fascinated by… like Goa trance, for example – just a rave on a beach in India, you know? Where there’s someone that’s spinning the music and it’s just this free-flowing continuous energy.”
Meanwhile, Mark Ronson has revealed that Kevin Parker will tour as part of his live band at a select number of shows this summer, which could include a Glastonbury Festival team-up.
Tame Impala will play a handful of UK and Ireland dates later this year. They are as follows:
Electric Picnic Festival (September 4)
End Of The Road Festival (5)
Glasgow Barrowland (8)
Liverpool Olympia (9)
Isle of Wight Bestival (10)
