All round nice guy Kevin Parker took the opportunity to connect with fans yesterday, sitting down for an ‘Ask Me Anything‘ session on Reddit. Amongst questions like “How do you feel when people say your voice sounds like John Lennon’s? Have you gotten sick of hearing that, honestly?”, and asking who he is currently into at the moment (to which he answered Kanye West, Tyler, The Creator and Caribou), as a hardcore Tame fan it was beautiful to see him really getting into it, respecting his fans questions and answering as best he can.
However, probably the best thing to come from the session was when a user asked Kevin what question HE would like to be asked, or what he wanted to talk about. Kevin went onto say he was waiting for someone to ask for a new song, which of course prompted many to do just that. It seems it was a case of ask and you shall receive, when Kevin simply replied, “OK well… since you asked…” and boom! New Tame track for the world to hear! Titled Disciples, this is the latest track to be released from the forthcoming third Tame Impala album, Currents. It’s a real doozy, you can check it out below and witness the man and his friends in action (as well as me openly weeping) at this year’s Splendour In The Grass!
