Tame Impala have unveiled three new B-sides, ‘List of People (To Try And Forget About)’, ‘Powerlines’ and ‘Taxi’s Here’. Scroll below to listen.
The songs will feature on the deluxe ‘Collector’s Edition’ box set of their acclaimed 2015 album ‘Currents’, one of NME‘s Albums Of The Year for that year. The box set will be released on Friday (November 17).
Ahead of the box set release, Tame Impala premiered ‘List of People (To Try And Forget About)’ on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show today (November 16).
Frontman Kevin Parker has explained that he started writing ‘List of People (To Try And Forget About)’ between the end of 2012’s ‘Lonerism’ and the start of the sessions for ‘Currents’.
“I guess maybe one of the reasons it didn’t end up on the album [‘Currents’] was that it was started on so early and I was so over it by the time I was finishing the album.”
“But by the time I got to finish [the track], I was really kind of like satisfied with it as a song and as a chunk of my creativity and emotion and stuff.”
