Tame Impala’s 2012 psych-meditation Lonerism cemented them as part of the upper echelon of indie rock, and rumors of their approaching third album have already begun to pop up. Well, earlier this week the band debuted a brand new track called Let It Happen along with a slew of tour dates — including appearances at Coachella, Sasquatch, Governor’s Ball and Lollapalooza. Over the span of nearly eight minutes, “Let It Happen” builds on the Australian group’s psych-rock sound but with more electronic flourishes than before (as promised). It finishes with a big, growly bit of guitar funk that folds in on the repeating vocal loops like origami.
No word on the album title or official release date yet, but it must be coming soon.
