Even a Flaming Lips collaboration couldn’t satiate Tame Impala fans their need for a follow-up to 2010’s hypnotic Innerspeaker. After months of nothing but sparse details regarding its recording (recording in Paris, working with Dave Fridmann, using a Roland RE-201 Space Echo), the band finally released a teaser for what the video suggests will be 2012’s Lonerism. Here’s a minute clip of some old tour stock footage accompanied by a phaser-draped psych-apocalyptic space jam featuring the ghost of John Lennon. Enjoy
EDIT: “Apocalypse Dreams” has since been released. It’s the b-side for their upcoming single “Elephant”, and you can here the six minute bi-polar tune regarding our existence here. The single is also free for download if you relinquish your email address (if Google can access your private information, this should be fine, right?).
