Tame Impala To Release 10th Anniversary Reissue Of 'Lonerism' In May

Wednesday, 15 February 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Tame Impala have announced a 10th anniversary deluxe boxset reissue of 'Lonerism'.

Their seminal second studio album will be re-released as a three-LP vinyl collection called 'Lonerism 2012-2022' on May 26, featuring several previously unheard demos, songs and a 24-page booklet. 

There's also new artwork designed by Immanuel Yang and Erin Knutson, as well as extra photography taken by band leader Kevin Parker and Matt Sav.

The original 2012 LP proved to be the breakout full-length from the Australian outfit, marking a further move into synthesizer-led psychedelia, and spawning the huge tracks Feels Like We Only Go Backwards and Elephant. Back in October, Parker wrote on Instagram:

"[It’s] difficult to sum up what the album means to me at this point. It was a pretty special time for me making the music. In a way it’s when I truly discovered myself as an artist. Coming off the back of 'Innerspeaker' I had this new sense of purpose… calling… whatever you want to call it."

He added: "I had finally given myself permission to let music take over my being completely… to become totally immersed in my own world of recording music. So I had this new sense of creative freedom. I felt free to be ambitious, weird, pop, experimental, whatever, and didn’t feel judged because I was finally just doing it for myself and believed in myself."

Tame Impala's most recent album came in the form of 2020's 'The Slow Rush'.
