Stream: Tame Impala - Elephant

'Elephant' is the beastly first single proper from Tame Impala's forthcoming sophomore effort, 'Lonerism', to be released this coming Oct 5 (AUS) / Oct 8 (UK) / Oct 9 (USA).

A swaggering glam strut about a cocky jock playing the jerk, 'Elephant' is Tame Impala at their confident (and of course cosmic) best. It's a wild space rock safari and the lift off point to planet Lonerism. Fasten those seat-belts!

Pre-order your copy of said album from the Mod Shop / iTunes / JB Hi Fi / GetMusic / Resident Music / Norman Records / Recordstore.co.uk / Amazon / Rough Trade.

This is also the final call-out for suggestions, your last opportunity to give us your thoughts / preferences / ravings for the deluxe edition of the album. More info here. Tour dates after the jump.
