Lil BUB (Yes, the Internet Cat) Is Dropping an Album
Looks like 'Meow the Jewels' really let the cat out of the bag
It looks as though 2015 is going to be remembered as a big, big year for cat music. First there was Run the Jewel’s seminal feline rap album Meow the Jewels. Now, superstar Internet cat Lil BUB is dropping a full-length album of her own.
Science & Magic, which comes out on December 4 via Joyful Noise Recordings, is described as a concept album that was written by “a magical space cat.” You can see some behind-the-scenes footage of Lil BUB, uh, hard at work, in a trailer here.
“First of all, it should be understood that this album is a genuine musical experience,” Andrew W.K. explained in a press release. “Also, it should be understood that this is not a novelty item or a cheap and disillusioning gimmick. This is a bonafide and musically gratifying concept album, which entirely emerged from the soul and spirit of Lil BUB herself. How do I know this? Because BUB told me so.”
“Not only is she the softest creature I have ever encountered, she is also the most musically and compassionately gifted,” he continues. “The songs on this album are her vision.”
