Tame Impala fans were surprised with another new song from the Australian psych-rockers on Oct. 28 – three days after the announcement of their new album, “The Slow Rush,” out Feb. 14, 2020.
Following the release of “Borderline” and “Patience” earlier this year, “It Might Be Time” discusses the passing of time and coming to terms with changes. Some fans speculated frontman Kevin Parker could be referring to the wait for new music since their last album, “Currents,” in 2015.
“I’ll be waiting anxiously with you until feb [sic] 14 2020, in the meantime enjoy this quirky new song about your own inner paranoid thoughts telling you you’ve lost your mojo,” said Parker in a recent Instagram post.
Despite the band’s success, some of the lyrics express a sense of uncertainty in terms of Parker and his career, such as, “It might be time to face it, you ain’t as fun as you used to be. You won’t recover, you ain’t as cool as you used to be.”
Tame Impala’s increase in popularity has earned them a performance on “Saturday Night Live” earlier this year, as well as headlining performances at Coachella, Treasure Island Music Festival and Desert Daze.
