Tame Impala Land No. Three Album on Billboard, Chart All Songs

Tame Impala have reached career-highs in terms of chart success as of this weekend, as their recent release The Slow Rush debuted at number three on Billboard 200 Albums chart, with 12 songs from the LP charting within the top 20 under Hot Rock Songs.

According to Billboard, the album earned 110,000 equivalent album units in it’s first week of release, earning the group their highest position on the chart since 2015’s Currents (which peaked at four).

“Breathe Deeper” and “Borderline” were the highest to chart for Tame Impala on Hot Rock Songs, at two and three respectively. “Lost in Yesterday” and “It Might Be Time,” as heard on Alt 2K, landed at five and eleven respectively.

Man behind the moniker, Kevin Parker, spoke to W Magazine about listening to The Slow Rush recently, noting a more positive response to the project than with previous albums.

“I thought, I may as well listen to the album and refresh my memory of what I was feeling when I wrote this bass line, and what I was intending when I did this drumbeat. It was cool,” he told W. “It was good. I liked it; it was mostly functional, but I enjoyed it.”
