Thundercat will release his third full-length studio album Drunk on 24th February via Brainfeeder.
The album is a 23-track epic journey into the often hilarious, sometimes dark mind of the Grammy-winning singer/bassist and finds a few of his friends joining him along the way including: Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Wiz Khalifa, Kamasi Washington and Brainfeeder mastermind Flying Lotus.
Press Release for “Thundercat releases new single ‘Bus In These Streets’ via Brainfeeder – Out 24th August 2016”
Earlier this year Thundercat (a veteran of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint) won his first Grammy award for his contribution to ‘These Walls’ from Kendrick Lamar’s opus “To Pimp A Butterfly”. He also guested on Comedy Central’s “Why? With Hannibal Buress”; cult late-night talk show “The Eric André Show” and premiered the animated video for “Song For The Dead” via Adult Swim
‘Bus In These Streets’ – a comedic ode to our dependence on technology – is the first new music from the virtuoso bassist and singer-songwriter since 2015’s “The Beyond… Where The Giants Roam” – a mini-album that featured the alt. anthem ‘Them Changes’ (10 million + streams worldwide). The track features Thundercat (vocals, bass); Louis Cole (keyboards, drums, programming); and Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus (programming, editing). The artwork is by Thundercat’s friend Bootymath.
Thundercat joins Flying Lotus, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Shabazz Palaces and The Gaslamp Killer at the upcoming Brainfeeder Showcase at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on 17th September 2016.
