Tame Impala releases a music video for
Is It True from The Slow Rush and their previous album Currents certified platinum in the USA.
With it, Parker scored his second #1 in Australia – the highest selling Australian artist album in 2020 to date, his highest charting album to date in both the US and UK, and 14 top 10 chart positions around the world.
Today, he reveals the official music video for new single Is It True. The vibe-heavy clip conjures up the visuals often seen in Tame Impala’s live sets. This week, Parker’s previous album Currents achieved RIAA-certified platinum status in the USA, with more than 2.5 million copies sold worldwide.
Earlier this month, Parker released his remix of 070 Shake’s Guilty Conscience, which followed his collaboration with Mike Skinner on The Streets track, Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better. Together with Oneohtrix Point Never, he contributed to The Weeknd’s latest album, After Hours, in addition to his ambidextrous at-home performance of Is It True on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The Slow Rush’s lead track Borderline is certified gold in Australia and Lost In Yesterday currently sits top 3 at Alternative Radio and claimed the AAA #1 position at US radio. The album also landed an enviable three tracks in the triple j hottest 100, with The Less I Know The Better taking out the #1 position on triple j’s Hottest 100 of the Decade.
Parker has emerged as one of the most influential voices of the last decade. His latest album serves as a deep reflection on the passage of time. “The Slow Rush is an extraordinarily detailed opus,” said Pitchfork. “I have to marvel that all this sound and history comes from Parker alone, picking every string and twisting every knob.”
Tame Impala’s rescheduled tour will commence at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Saturday 5 December and continue through Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
