Tame Impala threaten to sue Chinese milk ad for copying song
“I mean COME ON GUYS – at least put some effort in”
Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker is threatening to sue a Chinese milk company for copying their track ‘The Less I Know The Better’ for an advert.
Taking to Instagram, Parker shared footage of the commercial for a blueberry milk drink – with a soundtrack that’s strikingly similar to the song from their acclaimed third album ‘Currents‘.
Parker accompanied the video with the caption “I mean COME ON GUYS – at least put some effort in”, as well as tagging Tame Impala’s publishing company Sony ATV with the hashtag #Lawsuit and ‘now it’s my turn’.
As well as providing inspiration for Paramore on their next record, Tame Impala are currently ‘taking a break’ for 2017.
“I really don’t know how that’s going to feel because in the past, the album cycles haven’t really ended with a bang, or even ended decidedly. They just sort of peter out. But this time it really is a bookend,” said Parker.
“This album was a real door-opener for me,” Parker – who recently collaborated with Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson – added. “It’s funny, but I kind of knew it would be, just because of the way I was making songs, the way I was producing it. I sort of sensed that it wouldn’t just be an album that came and went. I had a feeling that it would take me other places.”
“What comes next is still very much a blank canvas. But a blank canvas in a good way – I’ve got all the paint!”
Meanwhile, Parker recently teased yet more ‘A list collaborations’, following his work on Lady Gaga’s new album ‘Joanna’.
