Tame Impala – Wings Of Time

Tame Impala musician and mastermind Kevin Parker has penned a moving new song for the movie, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, and it sounds as adventurous as the movie promises to be.

Penned by Kevin Parker and Nicholas Allbrook, “Wings Of Time” is about believing in oneself and living as adventurously as you choose to. “We are number one, it is clear to us now / All that’s said and done/I knew it all along and the world will find out / Oh, it takes time, to love,” Parker sings in the opening verse of the soundtrack for the upcoming fantasy adventure movie, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

I know I came on strong, I was just excited / You might come along, with us /Now we’re going home to the old horizon / To love, live, fall, survive,” the second verse goes, before the song concludes by telling listeners, “We did it right this time” over and over again.

“Being asked to do a track for the D&D soundtrack seemed like an unmissable opportunity to indulge in my long time love of fantasy prog rock,” says Parker. “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 is becoming a favorite when it comes to being recruited to work on a movie’s soundtrack, as this past summer has seen him work on the soundtrack of two major films. He teamed up with the legendary Diana Ross for the song “Turn Up the Sunshine” featured on the star-studded animated movie “Minions: Rise of Gru” and was tapped to reinvent “Edge of Reality” for Baz Luhrman’s Oscar-nominated Elvis.

The upcoming addition to the Dungeons and Dragons franchise will follow “a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers [as they] embark on an epic quest to retrieve a long lost relic, but their charming adventure goes dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.”

Starring Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, Regé-Jean Page, and others, Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves will be released in theatres worldwide by Paramount Pictures and eOne on March 31, 2023.
