Tame Impala respond to The Last Shadow Puppets’ tribute song

Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker has responded to The Last Shadow Puppets‘ tribute song, known among fans as ‘There’s A Storm Brewing’.

The Last Shadow Puppets were performing at Poland’s Open’Er festival this summer, when Alex Turner burst into the impromptu tune.

“There’s a storm brewing… there’s a storm brewing in the form of Tame Impala,” he sang for several minutes before adding: “Kevin Parker controls the weather system around here.”


Responding to the tribute, Parker told DIY: “We were waiting in our dressing room – I was extremely sick, it was the show straight after Glastonbury, and I just got really violently ill. I almost couldn’t play, so we heard that they made up this impromptu Tame Impala tribute jam, and I was like, ‘Oh no!’ It was the one night where I just wanted to get through it, I didn’t want anyone to hype it up, I didn’t want anyone to ramp it up. It’s sweet of them, really… They probably helped to save it.”

Meanwhile, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker has teased yet more ‘A list collaborations’, following his work on Lady Gaga’s new album ‘Joanna’.

“There’s definitely a few other things coming up,” he said. “You don’t have to be switched on to realise that if I do this, and then this happens… it’s just the way the music world works, you know? So there’s going to be other things happening, but I think I’d be ruining it if I mentioned who.”
