Retro chords and galactic beats seem to be Tame Impala’s speciality… and damn, he (Kevin Parker) does it so well. It’s hard to pin down what genre Parker fits into and that’s what makes him spectacular.
“It Might Be Time” is Parker’s third single this year. The song comes with the announcement of Tame Impala’s upcoming 2020 album (titled The Slow Rush) and tour. Parker said in a recent Instagram post, “I’m so excited for touring next year and beyond with a new show and new album of songs.” He also clarified the meaning behind the new track, saying, “Enjoy this quirky new song about your own inner paranoid thoughts telling you you’ve lost your mojo…”
The bouncy track features lyrics like, “I’m only tired of all these voices, always sayin nothing lasts forever” and “it might be time to face it, nobody knows what you’ve come here for”. After his explosive 2015 album, Currents, Parker has a lot of pressure to make his next full length project just as alluring and enticing as his last. The latest singles are surely headed in the right direction.
