Tame Impala have dropped off a new single, titled “Wings of Time,” for the official Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves soundtrack.
In a statement on the song, Tame Imapla’s Kevin Parker said that it was an “unmissable opportunity” to indulge in his “long-time love of fantasy prog rock.” He added, “I recruited my good friend Nicholas Allbrook, who is the person I know appreciates this subject matter the most. We rented a villa in Spain, that kind of felt like a castle, for two nights whilst on tour for Primavera. That location got us in the right frame of mind and it went from there. We stayed up late coming up with weird ideas and song lyrics.”
Parker has become quite the soundtrack star. As of late, he collaborated with Diana Ross on their Minions: Rise of the Gru track “Turn Up the Sunshine,” and he mixed Elvis Presley’s ”Edge of Reality” for Baz Luhrmann’s biopic. Meanwhile, the artist has also appeared on Gorlliaz’s newly-released album, Cracker Island, with a feature on “New Gold.”
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, which stars Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman and Daisy Head, will premiere in theaters on March 31. Listen to Tame Imapala’s “Wings of Time” above.
