Tame Impala: Midnight Chats – Episode 86

Kevin Parker demands a full length mirror to be facing him whenever he's having his photograph taken

The numbers don’t add up, but episode 86 of Midnight Chats marks the first in series 9, meaning we have 10 new podcasts coming over the next 10 Thursday nights, starting with this one with Tame Impala.

I met Kevin Parker not long after he’d finished his new album, The Slow Rush, in late November 2019. It’s since been released, so you may well have heard it.

We get a bit into the new record, Kevin’s diva demands, his work with Travis Scott and others, and the spider situation in Perth, Australia.

Listen below or via whichever podcast provider you use, where you can also subscribe to receive the whole of series 9.
