Flying Lotus Shares Two New Album Cuts
'Flamagra' LP lands May 24 via Warp Records.
The two-track offering “Spontaneous/Takashi” is the first step into the Flamagra universe.
“Spontaneous” is a flirtatious ballad with Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon singing atop a funky template. It blends perfectly with “Takashi,” a piano-driven instrumental that swirls itself into a soulful cosmic jam. The track is named after Takashi Yudo, an artist from the creative project teamLab. FlyLo’s visit to this visual experience in 2018 re-inspired his creative spirit.
It’s been nearly five years since the last Flying Lotus album, the Grammy-nominated You’re Dead! Flamagra features (in order of appearance) Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi, Solange, and more. It’s described as an “astral afro-futurist masterpiece of deep soul, cosmic dust, and startling originality.”
