Tame Impala have shared a new song that will appear on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (due in theaters on March 31). The track is called “Wings of Time” and is described by Kevin Parker in a statement as representing "an unmissable opportunity to indulge in my long time love of fantasy prog rock.”
"I recruited my good friend Nicholas Allbrook, who is the person I know appreciates this subject matter the most," Parker added. "We rented a villa in Spain, that kind of felt like a castle, for two nights whilst on tour for Primavera. That location got us in the right frame of mind and it went from there. We stayed up late coming up with weird ideas and song lyrics."
Tame Impala songs have featured on the soundtracks to two other movies in the last year: Minions: Rise of the Gru song “Turn Up the Sunshine,” and a remix of Elvis Presley’s “Edge of Reality” for the Oscar-nominated Elvis. Parker also appeared on Gorillaz' "New Gold" alongside Bootie Brown.
Last month it was announced that Tame Impala will celebrate a decade of their second studio album Lonerism with an extensive box set release. Due on May 26, the 3 LP box set features a 24-page booklet, unreleased Lonerism and never before heard demo sessions.
