The first taste of Tame Impala’s forthcoming Lonerism was the swirling “Apocalypse Dreams,” and this evening they let go of the official first single “Elephant.” It’s a churning, multi-chambered jam that showcases a leaner, tighter take without sacrificing the psych-y haze. Makes sense, as that’s the thing Lonerism producer Dave Fridmann has made a career out of. Stream it below.

Lonerism is out 10/9 on Modular.
