Three weeks since surprising the world with epic track "Let It Happen" via their website, Tame Impala have today unveiled their first official single "'Cause I'm A Man." "Cause I'm A Man" will be released Tuesday April 7 through Interscope.
Along with the 7 minute 34 second epic "Let It Happen," "'Cause I'm A Man" is also confirmed to appear on Tame Impala's hotly anticipated third album which the band have now revealed is titled Currents.
Sketched out in planes, cars, hotels and homes since the completion of Tame Impala's worldwide critically acclaimed Lonerism in 2012, "Cause I'm A Man" and "Let It Happen" were written, performed, recorded, produced and mixed by Kevin Parker in Fremantle, Western Australia.
LISTEN to "'Cause I'm A Man"
Much has changed since the Grammy Nominated and ARIA Award winning Tame Impala first emerged with an EP of dusty home recordings in 2008. By and large Kevin Parker's approach to recording has not, though the sound coming out of his home studio though has vastly expanded, as has the number of people anticipating the fruits of his labor.
News of the new track comes only days before Tame Impala perform their first show of the year at Fox Theater, Pomona, US and headline support slot at Coachella.
