Tame Impala are expected to release the follow-up to their marvelous 2012 album Lonerism later this year. Today they shared the first taste of that new album in the form of the seven minute plus track "Let It Happen". Where some bands might trend towards shorter, more accessible tracks after critical acclaim, several years of international touring and the likes, Tame Impala veer toward the epic in this new track. "Let It Happen" voyages through several iterations of itself, a stutter breakdown around the 4:00 mark and Kevin Parker using distorted vocoder effects. If this is a sign of what the new album will bring, we're all for it. Stream Tame Impala "Let It Happen" and scope their upcomign tour dates below.
