If you’re like us, you still have Tame Impala’s 2012 LP, Lonerism, in regular rotation. Trippy, crunchy, beyond awesome psych rock, right?

And if you’re like us, you’ve been waiting for what seems like an eternity for something new from the Aussie outfit. Luckily, we’ve had Kevin Parker’s kickass contributions to Mark Ronson’s latest album, Uptown Special, to sate our appetite. “Daffodils,” anyone? Yes, please!

At last, Tame Impala have done it. Just recently, they gifted their first new track in years (from their third album coming this year!) via the band’s official site. “Let It Happen” is a spellbinding, synth-driven dance trip clocking in at nearly eight minutes. We’re obsessed.

Whaddya think about the new Tame Impala tune? Catch ’em at this summer’s Governors Ball, going down June 5-7 at Randall’s Island Park.

Here’s some classic Tame Impala for your week, turn it up!
