Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and Theophilus London performed together under the banner Theo Impala during a sold-out show at The Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on Tuesday night.

The duo’s set reportedly included all-new, previously unheard material. A setlist has yet to surface, but an audience member captured footage of them performing “Whiplash”, London’s 2016 track featuring production from Tame Impala.

In a video post, London wrote that “show film + video + singles” are coming “out in a few days.” A representative told Pitchfork that Tame Impala leader Kevin Parker had produced a pair of songs for London. The two acts were also seen “on set” for an unnamed visual project earlier this month.

Check out some footage and pics below.

Update – October 22nd: Virgil Abloh premiered two Theo Impala collaborations on his Beats 1 radio show. Listen to the archived episode here (you can find “Whiplash” at the 52:05 mark and their cover of Steve Monite’s “Only You” at the 55:00 mark).

This past July, London dropped his Nights B4 BeBey mixtape. Tame Impala’s last full-length, Currents, came out back in 2015. Since then, Parker has produced for the likes of Lady Gaga, Kali Uchis, Travis Scott, and Tame Impala offshoot Pond.
