Patience truly pays off! Late last night, Kevin Parker unveiled the first Tame Impala track in four years. Titled “Patience,” the song is a dazzling disco-infused groover that was definitely worth the wait.

Since 2015’s Currents, Parker has become one of pop music’s favorite collaborators, working with heavyweights like Mark Ronson, Lady Gaga, SZA, Theophilus London, Travis Scott, and ZHU. Also, don’t forget that Rihanna covered Currents track “Same Ol’ Mistakes” in 2016.

Tame Impala will be playing a number of festivals this summer, including Coachella, and will be the musical guest on next week’s Saturday Night Live.

Listen to “Patience” below and read a 2015 interview with Parker about Currents here.
