A new Tame Impala song is being premiered today on Zane Lowe’s Beat 1 radio show. Listen to Kevin Parker chat about it below.
In case you missed it, Tame Impala recently announced the long-awaited ‘Collector’s Edition’ box set of Currents, after teasing it more than a year ago. The release will feature the album on limited edition red marbled vinyl with alternate artwork, a 12-inch featuring two remixes, and a 7-inch and flexidisc with three b-sides, plus some goodies likes zines and posters.
According to NME, ahead of the box set release tomorrow (Friday the 17th of November), the band will premiere one of the b-sides, List of People (To Try And Forget About), on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show today, Thursday (16th). You can listen to Kevin Parker chatting about it below.
Parker explained that he started writing the tune towards the end of 2012’s Lonerism and the start of the sessions for Currents.
“I guess maybe one of the reasons it didn’t end up on [Currents] was that it was started on so early and I was so over it by the time I was finishing the album.”
“But by the time I got to finish it, I was really kind of like satisfied with it as a song and as a chunk of my creativity and emotion and stuff.”
