To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release, Tame Impala presents a deluxe, 4LP reissue of the debut album InnerSpeaker. Recorded in 2009 in Western Australia, InnerSpeaker was Parker’s first full length missive and an explosive invitation into what would become his inimitable psych-tinged world.

Released in 2010 to international acclaim, InnerSpeaker won the J Award Australian Album of the YearRolling Stone’s Album of the Year and received multiple ARIA Award nominations.  triple j called it a “spiralling, trippy adventure”, while Pitchfork remarked, “it’s difficult to be so plugged-in to a vintage feel without the music seeming time-capsuled, but the band’s vibrance help these songs sound very much alive.”

Repressed for the first time since its release in February this year, on Friday 18 December, The Slow Rush will be available for the first time on a new limited edition 180 gram creamy white vinyl.  With The Slow Rush, Parker scored his second #1 album in Australia – the highest selling Australian artist album in 2020 to date, his highest charting album to date in both the US and UK, and 14 top 10 chart positions around the world.  Last month, Parker was nominated for seven ARIA Awards including Album of the Year, Best Group, Best Pop Release, Best Rock Album, Best Engineer and Best Producer.
