CURRENT: Tame Impala – “‘Cause I’m a Man”

Following the brilliant “Let It Happen,” Tame Impala have officially announced their follow-up to 2012’s great LonerismCurrents is out later this year on Interscope, and Kevin Parker and the rest of Tame Impala have just released “‘Cause I’m a Man,” a fluid slow-jam that finds Parker singing, “’cause I’m a man, woman / don’t always think before I do.” What’s fascinating about the lyrical content is how Parker doesn’t appear to be making a justification for his errors, rather highlighting an inherent flaw in our species. “It’s the only answer I got for you,” he later sings. Sometimes the easiest answers are the hardest.
