Today Tame Impala surprised us all with a brand new song called “Let It Happen.” The song was made available as a free download on their website and is the first song off their new album, which we can expect later this year.
“Let It Happen” is a nearly 8-minute extravaganza that goes off a funky 70’s-inspired psych groove that it’s constantly weaving in and out of. The band is leaning towards a more electronic sound, but that stoned Tame Impala glaze is still very much there. This one builds and builds, and when that big climatic break occurs, it’s total a blissful dream. It’s damn good to hear those dreamy Kevin Parker vocals again.
It’s exciting to see Parker pushing the boundaries of what Tame Impala can do as a band even further. This is just the album’s opener too…imagine what else awaits for us.
