Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Release Date: 26th May
Remember 2012 when every band sounded like Tame Impala? Never could quite do it could they? Obviously 'Innerspeaker' is Kevin Parker's finest hour (my inbox is open) but 'Lonerism' is a worthy follow up, a carnival of dreamlike psychedelic day-glo glam rock and lands in a sweet-spot between the rock and the electronic psych disco, which would explore further on 'Currents'. This big old deluxe edition features the banger-fest itself, demos and explorations that would eventually make this record what it was.
2022 marked the 10th anniversary of Lonerism. To celebrate, Tame Impala present fans with a deluxe 3LP reissue of the album that features previously unreleased demos from the era.
Recorded in both Western Australia and Paris between 2010 and 2012, Lonerism was Tame Impala’s breakout record. It received critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and NME and is regarded as one of the best albums of 2012.
This expanded deluxe edition of the album features the singles ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’ and ‘Elephant’ amongst the original album track list, plus:
- 2 previously unreleased demos
- A full side of album demos
- Deluxe 24-page booklet
Lonerism’s artwork is by Leif Podhajsky and Kevin Parker, and the album was mixed by Dave Fridmann. Anniversary edition artwork designed by Erin Knutson and Immanuel Yang, with additional photography by Matt Sav and Kevin Parker.
