In December last year, Kevin Parker revealed that he is currently working on Tame Impala’s next album. Commenting on its progress, he said: “The way I do it is there’s never recording ‘sessions.’ One finishes, the next one starts. It’s just continuous. I write songs everyday, but I don’t necessarily get to record them. I just record whenever I can, whenever I’m home, whenever I have access to something that can make music.”

Tame Impala are set to play this summer’s Latitude festival. They will join headliners Two Door Cinema Club and Damon Albarn on the bill, with Agnes Obel, Jungle, Damien Jurado, Julia Holter, Valerie June, Koreless, East India Youth, Kwabs, Eagulls and Fat White Family also included on the line-up.
