Tame Impala will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their landmark album ‘Lonerism’ with the release of a special 3LP box set. Pre-orders for the collection, which will include unreleased demos, a 24 page booklet, and more, are now available.
In a recent Instagram post, Kevin Parker, the mastermind behind Tame Impala, reflected on the album and its impact on his career. “It was a pretty special time making the music for me. In a way, it’s when I truly discovered myself as an artist. Coming off the back of ‘Innerspeaker’ I had this new sense of purpose…calling…whatever you want to call it. I had finally given myself permission to let music take over my being completely…to become totally immersed in my own world of recording music. So I had this new sense of creative freedom. I felt free to be ambitious, weird, pop, experimental, whatever, and didn’t feel judged because I was finally just doing it for myself and believed in myself.”
The album boasted singles such as ‘Elephant’ and ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’, was nominated for Best Alternative Album at the 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards and earned multiple ARIA Awards.
