Man It Feels Like Space Again is the sixth studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band Pond, released in January 2015 via Universal Music and Caroline Records.

Formed in Perth by Tame Impala members Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson, with fellow Perth musician "Shiny" Joe Ryan (who does the visuals for Tame Impala) in 2008, Pond was founded with the intention of being a collaborative music project where the trio could get anyone they wanted to play whatever they wanted. The band's first album, Psychedelic Mango was recorded in 2009 on the band's 8-track in Nick's parent's house. 

Following the success of Tame Impala's 2010 debut album Innerspeaker, the band recorded another album, Beard, Wives, Denim, adding Jamie Terry, and Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker to the band's lineup, and releasing the album in 2012 following the band's North American tour, and appearence at South by Southwest. The same year Pond were named "The Hottest New Band In The World"  by NME in their "Hot List" issue. 

Originally planned as the sequel for Beards, Wives, Denim, but overlooked for Hobo Rocket, Man It Feels Like Space Again marks a shift from straight psych-rock to a psych-rock/pop blend, transitioning from the darker sounds and themes of Hobo Rocket to a lighter, more synth focused album. In his review for Triple J, Richard Kingsmill said: "Taking cues from psych-pop contemporaries The Flaming Lips and MGMT, with a healthy dose of mid-'70s nostalgia, Man It Feels Like Space Again is as catchy as it is wild, and one of the best statements made by the band so far".

Man It Feels Like Space Again ranked at number 34 on NME'S Albums of the Year 2015, and was released with three singles: "Elvis' Flaming Star", "Sitting Up on Our Crane", and "Zond".

This LP Record is on 180 Gram Vinyl housed in a Die-Cut Sleeve with Printed Inner Sleeve and Digital Download Code, pressed in Europe via Caroline.
