Tame Impala is set to have a busy year, headlining this year’s Coachella in April and playing a handful of festivals and U.S. headlining shows.
The Australian rockers dropped their last album Currents in 2015, but frontman Kevin Parker has kept busy, remixing Miguel’s track “Waves” on his EP Rogue Waves in 2016 and collaborating with Lady Gaga on her 2016 album Joanne. Parker assisted on the album’s lead single “Perfect Illusion” alongside Gaga, Mark Ronson and BloodPop.
In October 2018, Travis Scott recruited Parker and John Mayer to form an unlikely supergroup for his SNL performance of “Skeletons” and “Astrothunder.”
Following SNL‘s tweet about the band’s appearance on the show, Tame Impala shared an Instagram video from the studio teasing new music.
