Tame Impala releases new single, ‘Borderline’

LISTEN: Tame Impala's latest single, 'Borderline'

It’s been nearly four years since the release of Currents (2015), and now, Tame Impala has just dropped its newest single, Borderline.

Borderline is expected to be part of an upcoming studio album, which would be the fourth for the psychedelic rock project.

Australian musician Kevin Parker, Tame Impala’s founder, is the sole member and mastermind behind the music.

Tame Impala is scheduled to headline the Coachella festival this weekend and next weekend. The Parker-led project will also be heading to Montreal this August as part of the Osheaga festival.

Parker, 33, has toured with a multitude of talented musicians since the inception of Tame Impala in 2007.

The release of Borderline comes as a treat to many dedicated fans, who have waited years to hear new music from Tame Impala. Aside from Patience, which was released only two weeks ago, it’s the longest fans have ever had to wait for a Tame Impala release.
