Release Date: 18th December 2020
Kevin Parker is finally back with a new, long-awaited Tame Impala album and follow-up to 2015's critically-acclaimed Currents. The Slow Rush sees Parker taking the final step into the worlds of pop and electronic music which he has been progressively working towards over the course of each album, but still with his signature wash of psychedelics. The album is a groovin' group of tunes embracing funk and soul to add the plethora of contrasting sounds already in his arsenal. This is still unmistakably Tame Impala.

"Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) has officially announced his fourth studio album, The Slow Rush out February 14th on Fiction. The Slow Rush was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle, Australia. The twelve tracks were recorded, produced and mixed by Parker. The Slow Rush is Parker’s deep dive into the oceans of time, conjuring the feeling of a lifetime in a lightning bolt, of major milestones whizzing by while you’re looking at your phone, it’s a paean to creation and destruction and the unending cycle of life. Parker told the New York Times earlier this year, “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.” The album cover was created in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and features a symbol of humanity all but swallowed whole by the surrounding environment, as though in the blink of an eye."
