Thundercat’s fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2017’s ‘Drunk‘, is, in his own words: “about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that. “It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek,” he continues, “but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand… some things just aren’t meant to be understood.” The project is executive-produced by Flying Lotus; “The most fun part of working with cat, aside from the obvious things, is that there’s complete trust to let me do my thing. He will come through with some demos that are literally 25 seconds or 30, and then gives me complete freedom to help structure the LP and stitch it together,” he said on Twitter. “A long time ago he told me, ‘I just want to sing and play bass,’ and it’s my job to make it easy for him to do just that.”
FlyLo summarises the album nicely; “There’s a hopeful innocence that turns into love, until a heavy dose of reality and pain shakes the whole shit up. That had to be the story. In 3 acts.” Stream below via SoundCloud.
