During a Reddit AMA session last night, a fan asked Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker to share a new song, and he actually obliged! “Disciples” follows “Let It Happen” and “‘Cause I’m A Man” as the third song we’ve heard from Tame Impala’s forthcoming third album Currents. Compared to those other two tracks, it’s a way less epic affair, clocking in at less than two minutes and chugging hookily where the other songs swoop majestically. But it’s still a great song and a great example of Parker’s impeccable studio craftsmanship, with its Todd Rundgren guitars and its planetarium-ready synth-line. Listen to it below.
Currents is coming sometime this year on Interscope. Thanks to old Stereogum homey Miles Bowe for the tip!
