Tame Impala took to socials this morning to share a cryptic new video teasing… something. The clip is certainly an announcement for new content of some sort, but we’re left to speculate as to what it exactly could be. Some of the only concrete details revealed was a release date of “09/21,” a hashtag of #AionWell.
The video is soundtracked by The Slow Rush track “Posthumous Forgiveness,” however it appeared to have a tweaked mix, leading many to believe that this is a teaser of a follow-up B-Sides release. Considering that each Tame Impala studio album has released a companion B-Sides & Remixes EP, this perhaps might be the most likely.
There are also others who are suggesting that this is a tour announcement. On the freshly launched AionWell website, there’s an image of a bottle of “Rushium” with some fine print that reads “S.R. Tour.” If you take the survey about time on that site, you’re prompted to enter your info for a mailing list.
Fans on social media are already considering other possibilities as well. Some believe that this is a trailer for the “Posthumous Forgiveness” music video, however it seems a bit odd to announce a music video release three months in advance.
You can check out the teaser video below. What do you think it is?
