Supreme bassist Thundercat has announced his new album Drunk, his third LP and his first full-length since 2013’s Apocalypse. The guest list is a wild one; the dude managed to get Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald on one song, plus features from Wiz Khalifa, frequent collaborator Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, and Kamasi Washington. The joint with Loggins and McDonald, called “Show You the Way,” serves as the project’s first single and is available for a stream below.
“That song to me is about going down the rabbit hole, taking you to another place,” Thundercat said about “Show You the Way” via a press release. “On the edge of dark, there’s the brightest light. It means a lot to me in the sense of… the experience that I’ve had growing up with friends and people that I’ve been around where it’s inviting them into where I come from emotionally. Sometimes it’s a pretty intense thing. The point is how weird things can get. I feel like it’s very funny that, in a way, of course Michael McDonald and Kenny would be there.”
Drunk, the follow-up to his 2015 mini-album The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam,is scheduled to drop February 24 via Brainfeeder. View the cover art, the track list, and his scheduled tour dates below.
