Thanks to the huge success of second album Lonerism, Tame Impala have seemingly been touring non-stop for the past two years. The downside to that is that new material becomes thin on the ground – save for the odd amazing cover version, of course.
It makes sense then, that Tame Impala are planning on releasing a live EP on vinyl to coincide with Record Store Day on 19 April.
The eight-track EP is called ‘Live Versions’ and features tracks from debut album InnerSpeaker as well as Lonerism that were recorded at a gig in Chicago late last year. Apparently the included tracks were hand-picked by Kevin Parker as they are the ones most removed from the album versions. The full tracklist is below.
As a taster, they have made Lonerism-opener ‘Be Above It’ available to stream:
