Watch Tame Impala Perform 'Let It Happen' on 'Conan'
Coming off a smoking show at last weekend’s Coachella fest, Tame Impala has kept that fire going with a scintillating performance on Conan.
For their guest music slot on Conan O'Brien's late night talkshow Wednesday, the Aussie psychedelic rock act chose to perform "Let It Happen," a new track which is equal parts trippy and floaty, and mostly epic.
"Let It Happen" was the first recording shared from the band’s forthcoming album release Currents. The Perth-based outfit then released their first single proper, “Cause I’m A Man,” earlier this month.
Tame Impala was one of the most-talked about bands on Twitter following their Friday Coachella set that included Lonerism tracks "Elephant" and "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards", and the eight-minute jam that is "Let It Happen". They’ll play in the California desert again this weekend as part of an extensive world tour that runs through mid-September.
A release date for Currents hasn’t been announced. And Kevin Parker is staying tight-lipped on what to expect. Speaking to Australia’s Triple J network, Tame Impala's multi-instrumentalist frontman said "it's [honestly] hard to say" what the sound and sonic direction of what their third studio album would be.
"There's definitely a lot of different things on there, definitely my most varied... I already get the feeling no two songs are alike and I'm not sure if everyone says that when they release an album."
