Tame Impala Man up with single launch

Tame Impala have launched a stream of their upcoming single ‘Cause I’m A Man – and it’s drawing both cheers and jeers from their fans.

It follows the surprise release of Let It Happen last month. Both will appear on third album Currents, with details to be confirmed in due course.

The stream, launched early this morning (Sunday), has already drawn strong reactions on the Tame Impala Facebook page, from “Not entirely comfortable with this song” and “What happened to psychedelia” to “This is incredible” and “You guys stepped from the 70s to the 80s!”

‘Cause I’m A Man will be released as a single this week. Kevin Parker and co return to the UK in September:

Sep 04: End Of The Road Festival, Wiltshire

Sep 04: Dublin Electric Picnic

Sep 06: Stradbally Hall

Sep 09: Glasgow Barrowland

Sep 11: Bestival, Isle of Wight

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
