Tame Impala returns with a new quarantine performance of The Slow Rush hit “Is It True” for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Colbert’s The Late Show was one of the first late night television programs to announce that they would be moving forward without live audiences for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus pandemic. Kevin Parker‘s rendition, featuring a band of three synced versions of himself playing backing guitars and lead vocals is a perfect example of how to get creative giving the current quarantine limitations.

Kevin Parker recently told Rick Rubin about his decision to lie to record executives early on in his career, saying that his Tame Impala project was actually a full band. “Tame Impala was always kind of perceived as a band, and I was kind of cool with that because it sounded like a band with a bunch of guys jamming. It was eating away at me that it wasn’t the truth, and also I wanted people to know that it was more of a solo recording project because I realized that solo artists get away with completely changing their sound more than bands do.”

Parker’s appearance on Colbert follows his acoustic version of “On Track” and his immersive, headphones-required The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place remix album meant to transport everyone in quarantine to a live venue.

Watch the full performance above. In more music news, The Streets shared a new lockdown single, “Where The F*ck Did April Go.”
