Tame Impala (aka Kevin Parker) recently released a new song, "Patience," which was one of our Songs of the Week. Last night Parker and his band stopped by Saturday Night Live to perform the song, as well as performing another new song "Borderline." Watch performances of both below.

It's been four years since his last album, his excellent third album, Currents (which was #2 on Under the Radar's Top 100 Albums of 2015 list). "Patience" certainly sounds like Tame Impala (Parker hasn't gone off in any new weird direction, at least not yet). It's got a bit of a piano-fueled disco beat to it and Parker's signature smooth vocals. The single is out now via Interscope, but there's no definitive word yet on a new album.

A previous press release described "Patience" like so: "The track is a lyrical meditation on life's cycles and phases that ascends to an overwhelmingly blissed out zenith, as our protagonist makes peace with the transience of time. Its a potent hint at the infinite possibilities for future Tame Impala."
