In the video – posted to Tame Impala’s Instagram account – Parker performs the song alone from the comfort of his own bed, delivering a solo rendition with just acoustic guitar and vocals. Whereas Lennon’s original is filled out with bass, drums and a soaring string section, Parker’s sparse arrangement shows how well the Imagine classic’s songwriting holds up on its own.
Between all that, Parker has also dabbled in property ownership, purchasing the Western Australian recording studio where he recorded debut album Innerspeaker.
Last month, Tame Impala announced they were rescheduling their The Slow Rush Australian tour, with those dates now set to take place in December 2021.
