Kevin Parker has a new gift for everyone currently practicing social distancing and in self-isolation due to the Coronavirus. The multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter mixed an entirely new cut of his latest Tame Impala project, The Slow Rush for an immersive experience. “I made something for all you isolators out there,” he stated in an Instagram caption. “Headphones required for full immersive effect.”

The main purpose of The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place is to teleport listeners into a new physical place through the updated mixing and mastering of the full 57-minute album. Background crowd noises can be faintly heard underneath each track while the space reflects a large concert hall, the performance partially muted by walls as if one went to an adjacent bar to grab a quick drink. It’s the type of sound one would hear upon first walking into a venue a little late or darting out for a quick smoke break.

“The only purpose for making music was to get lost in it,” Kevin Parker said in HYPEBEAST Magazine: Issue 28: The Ignition Issue. That sense of escapism is tangible to this day. “Without music, I am nothing. I am a shell of a man. I don’t feel like I have much to offer socially.” He hopes to become someone who can converse on “books, films, life.”

Tame Impala recently rescheduled a number of tour dates including moving a San Fransisco show to September 21. Before all of the movement due to the COVID-19 crisis, Kevin Parker did manage to release a music video for “Lost in Yesterday.”
