Flying Lotus is celebrating the first anniversary of his Flamarga by releasing an instrumental version of it. Today, he shared the news by dropping “Black Balloons Reprise (Instrumental)”, which you can stream here.
“Whereas the original album featured a dream cast of vocal collaborators, this project places the masterful arrangements, electronics and musicianship at the forefront,” a press release reads, “a treasured peak under the hood of one of today’s most consistently innovative producers.”
Flying Lotus recruited a team of L.A.’s finest to contribute to the album, including Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Brandon Coleman, Justin Brown, Dennis Hamm, Taylor Graves, Ronald Bruner, Herbie Hancock, Deantoni Parks and Robert Glasper.
The album is being pressed on limited edition double vinyl, which includes animated labels and an exclusive animated slipmat by Winston Hacking and Drew Tetz. It will also be available on CD and digitally. Flamarga (Instrumentals) is slated for a May 29 release. Check out the tracklist below.
