Australian rock outfit Tame Impala have unveiled “It Might Be Time,” the first single from their upcoming fourth studio album, The Slow Rush
On the psychedelic track, frontman Kevin Parker ruminates on the passage of time and it can change a relationship. “It might be time to face it / It ain’t as fun as it used to be, no / You’re goin’ under / You ain’t as young as you used to be,” he sings on the chorus.
In an interview with The New York Times, Parker revealed that the tracks on The Slow Rush “carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards.” He added, “I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.”
Prior to “It Might Be Time,” the band dropped two new songs: “Patience” and “Borderline.” It’s unclear if either track will be included on The Slow Rush. The record arrives February 14, 2020 via Modular/Island Records.
