Thundercat has returned! Having kept relatively quiet (apart from a Flying Lotus x BADBADNOTGOOD collab) since dropping his 2017 album Drunk, today the bass-master extraordinaire has not only teamed up with The Internet’s Steve Lacy & funk legend Steve Arrington on a surprise new track “Black Qualls” but announced he has a new album on the way!
If you needed a funky new anthem in your life (and we definitely did), look no further. With the combined forces of Thundercat’s unmistakably groovy basslines, Steve Lacy’s multi-instrumental goodness and Steve Arrington’s incredible additional vocals, this is exactly what the doctor ordered.
And if that wasn’t enough, Tcat has also announced today that his new, Flyig Lotus co-produced album It Is What It Is will be releasing on Brainfeeder Records come April 3. Till then, check out “Black Qualls” below and enjoy!
