Parker discusses new album Currents in the new Uncut

TAGS:

Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker discusses his new album, Currents, in the latest issue of Uncut, dated August 2015 and out now.

The singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist also talks about the influences on their third record, the group’s live shows and his new synth-heavy sound.

“The backbone of Tame Impala has always been groove,” explains Parker. “I never wanted to do a song that you couldn’t dance to – or groove to at least, whatever the difference is between those things.

“I heard a few people say it was going to be more dance- or club-oriented, and ‘Let It Happen’ is a song where I was flexing that fantasy. But I wouldn’t say that the rest [of Currents] is like a dance album, not in the slightest.

“At the same time, I hate to say the album is this or that – I prefer people to judge it themselves.”

The new issue of Uncut is out now.

The History Of Rock – a brand new monthly magazine from the makers of Uncut – goes on sale in the UK on July 9. Click here for more details.
