Shares New Video “Fire is Coming” feat. David Lynch from upcoming album Flamagra (out 24 May via-Warp).
Almost 5 years ago, Flying Lotus' latest album, You're Dead! was released and nominated for a Grammy Award.
Throughout this time, the Los Angeles-based artist with a thousand talents has been working on a series of projects: he collaborated with Kendrick Lamar on the classic To Pimp a Butterfly,
wrote and directed the comic-horrific hallucination Kuso (which premiered during the
Sundance Festival), and produced most of Thundercat's Drunk album. He has also
made his Brainfeeder label the most consistently innovative label of the decade.
This is Flamagra - a work that takes all the creative advances of the last twelve years of his career and takes them further. This new album to come on Warp Records includes hip-hop, soul, jazz, global dance music, tribal polyrhythm, IDM, Beat Scene from LA, but rises above a very
precise vortex whose coordinates remain blurry.
It's not just a Flying Lotus album, it's perhaps the decisive album. An astral and afro-futurist masterpiece of deep soul, cosmic dust, of a striking originality.
"I've been working on stuff for the last five years, but it was always going in all directions. I have always had this thematic idea in mind - a concept that persists around fire, an eternal flame on top of a hill. Some people love it, others hate it. Some go there for a romantic date, others burn love letters."
Present on Flamagra: Anderson, Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, David Lynch, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi,
Solange and more...
