Under the Radar's new print issue features Tame Impala on the cover. It is the first interview frontman Kevin Parker has granted in honor of Tame Impala's upcoming third album, Currents, which he was still putting the finishing touches on when we interviewed him. "I think this album without a doubt is my most musically diverse one," Parker promises in our interview.

"By the time I'm finished with an album I have absolutely no idea what it sounds like," Parker also admits. "I have no idea what genre it is. I have no idea what people will say it sounds like or what category it will be put in."

The cover story goes in-depth into the creation of Currents, Parker's music school days and the initial formation of Tame Impala, and Parker's intense perfectionism. "If it's not the first vocal take, then it's the 600th, and I literally went over into four digits! In the recording program I use, it counts the takes you do. It will say '18 audio' or '18 vocal one.' And I looked back, and it was like 1,003 for this one track!" reveals Parker, laughing.

Below is a very brief teaser video showing the behind the scenes of our cover photo shoot and briefly flashing the issue's cover. The cover and video were both shot by Shervin Lainez and Matt Fink wrote the cover story. Check back tomorrow for the full details of what's in the issue.
