Tame Impala’s Next Album Will Be “Less Rock And More Electronic”

XXXXXXXXX perform live for fans during the 2014 Big Day Out Festival on January 17, 2014 in Auckland, New Zealand.

Earlier this month we heard “Daffodils,” Mark Ronson’s collaboration with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker, who is credited on three of the tracks on Ronson’s new album Uptown Special. The Australian psych-rock band’s hugely successful breakout record Lonerism came out over two years ago, and up until now we haven’t heard much about its follow-up. In an interview with Faster Louder, Tame Impala keyboardist Jay Watson (pictured) hinted that the band’s new material will sound “less rock and more electronic,” so maybe Ronson’s influence is rubbing off. Watson is admittedly not as involved with the band as he was during the making of Lonerism, commenting that, “I got to hear a lot of [Lonerism] as it was happening last time. But this time I don’t think anyone’s really heard it [all] except [Kevin Parker] and his girlfriend.”
