Tame Impala’s second album ‘Lonerism’ was named NME‘s Album of The Year in 2012. Frontman Kevin Parker wrote and recorded the album entirely on his own, a process reflected in the albums lyrics and title.

Parker spent months painstakingly assembling the album on his own in various places around the world, but admitted he finds it difficult to be completely satisfied with his own work. “You never really finish an album,” he says, “you just run out of time.”

However, Parker also says he now believes the album is his best work: “I had that moment with every one of the record’s songs where I’d feel like it was the best thing I’d ever written. I still think it’s the best bunch of music I’ve made so far.”
