It's 2012, and so now launch of a record would be complete without some good old-fashioned hype being generated by a YouTube teaser video, and that's exactly what Tame Impala have delivered today.

It checks all the boxes for an album trailer: a guy rambling and muttering complete nonsense; chopped and skewed clips with unnecessary-yet-cool effects of places and things you'll probably never see in your lifetime and, of course, a snippet of a new track.

The new record - which seems be called Lonerism - will be available later this year from the guys who brought you Innerspeaker, Modular.
