Thundercat Drops New Track Ahead of Brainfeeder Tour
The Grammy-winning bassist joins Flying Lotus, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Shabazz Palaces and The Gaslamp Killer on tour.
Ahead of an upcoming Brainfeeder tour, Thundercat has shared new track “Bus In The Streets,” a comedic ode to our dependence on technology and his first new music since 2015’s mini-album The Beyond… Where The Giants Roam. The track features Thundercat (vocals, bass); Louis Cole (keyboards, drums, programming); and Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus (programming, editing), with Thundercat’s friend Bootymath supplying the artwork.
Aside from the new track, Thundercat has announced a string of dates in Oakland and LA alongside Brainfeeder cohorts Flying Lotus, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Shabazz Palaces and The Gaslamp Killer. Thundercat will also play shows in Brooklyn and London.
