Tame Impala have unveiled the first track from their forthcoming new album – scroll down to listen to it.

Titled ‘Elephant’, the track will feature on the band’s forthcoming second album ‘Lonerism’, which is the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Innerspeaker’.

Speaking about the influences behind the new album in this week’s NME which is on newsstands now, or available digitally, singer Kevin Parker says: “I already feel like this is the album I’ve always dreamed about making”. He added: “I knew it was gonna be a whole lot more indulgent and decadent. And less restrained. I was like, ‘fuck it, I can’t be bothered. I don’t wanna hold back from doing crazy shit anymore.'”


Earlier this month (July 9), the band revealed the first taste of their new album with a download of the track ‘Apocalypse Dreams’, which you can also hear below.

The tracklisting to ‘Lonerism’ is as follows:

‘Be Above It’
‘Endors Toi’
‘Apocalypse Dreams’
‘Mind Mischief’
‘Music To Walk Home By’
‘Why Won’t They Talk To Me?’
‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’
‘Keep On Lying’
‘She Just Won’t Believe Me’
‘Nothing That Has Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control’
‘Sun’s Coming Up’
