Producer Mark Ronson and Tame Impala are reminding us that summer is just around the corner with a collaborative two song video for "Summer Breaking" and "Daffodils." "Daffodils" is credited to noted author Michael Chabon and [Kevin] Parker of Tame Impala, while "Summer Breaking" is credited to those two in addition to Ronson and frequent Kanye West-collaborator Jeff Bhasker.
As Ronson explained to Rolling Stone: "'Summer Breaking' is probably my personal favorite on [my fourth studio album] Uptown Special, and seeing as Kevin and Tame Impala are so hot right now, we thought we could really make the most of this 'hotness' by making a video for not one but two of his songs from Uptown Special, 'Summer Breaking' and 'Daffodils.' [Director] Theo Wenner made a beautiful video that really captures (and goes beyond) what we were envisioning when Michael Chabon wrote those haunting lyrics."
Ronson appeared during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show with Bruno Mars, playing their 2015 hit, "Uptown Funk." Kevin Parker is currently on a world tour with Tame Impala, and will be crisscrossing the globe through September. Dates include three South American Lollapalooza gigs in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, as well as concerts in China, Japan, Singapore, and stops at Barcelona's Primavera Sound and Lisbon's NOS Alive Festival. There are also shows scheduled to take place across the United States.
