Flying Lotus shares video for Anderson .Paak-assisted single, ‘More’Hjkhjkhkjhkjh 1557672176 Compressed

Flying Lotus made headlines last week after the release of “More,” a single from his new album featuring Anderson .Paak. The track, which has apparently been in the works for more than five years, now has an accompanying video that includes all the surrealism expected from a Flying Lotus video.

Directed by Shinichiro Watanabe of the anime “Cowboy Bebop,” the video hosts Anderson .Paak as a robot, doling out advice (in the form of soulful bars) to Flying Lotus’ pained space-man character, eventually turning him into a burning tree made of human organs. The second video from Flamagra, Flying Lotus’ forthcoming album due out May 24, this release only makes the 27-track, feature-heavy project more intriguing.

Flying Lotus announces North American tour, pulls some flaming hot dogs and new tracks off the grill

This post was originally published on this site

Flying Lotus was briefly and naturally away from the touring game while he focused on bolstering Brainfeeder’s horrific cinematic chops, so the last time you saw him in a live setting might’ve been in 2017 — back when the times were simple, cats and dogs had amiable conversations in an undiscovered language, and 3D was enjoying its twilight as a thing on which people readily sought to visually feast.

Personally, I don’t think 3D really enhances much in a movie theater setting, but what Flying Lotus brought to the stage a year and a half ago (and even on tours prior to that, iirc) was a crazy display that transplanted audience members into a believably extraterrestrial territory. Supplementing the 3D visuals was a remarkably abstract set, which surely must’ve disappointed a few folks who were anticipating and interpreting “instrumental hip-hop” in its most banger sense. (A more confrontational FlyLo might’ve responded, “Don’t you know who the fuck I am?”)

In case you missed it, he’s the guy with the new album coming out May 24 on Warp, and now he’s got plenty of supportive North American tour dates scheduled for around the end of summer. There’s no word on any 3D frills adding an extra draw for potential ticket-holders, but coherent dancing attempts’ll definitely prove futile if the past is any indication.

Other attractions of the festival will include Taos Vortex’s illuminated outdoor wonderland, centered around different neighborhoods and the creatures that inhabit them. Huts and homes scattered around the park invite everyone to step inside, find their ‘hood, and fully celebrate the multi-dimensional get-down of the summer.

Flying Lotus shares two new singles, ‘Spontaneous’ and ‘Takashi,’ from forthcoming LP

Flying Lotus shares two new singles, ‘Spontaneous’ and ‘Takashi,’ from forthcoming LPFlying Lotus Press

Just shy of a week ago, Flying Lotus finally previewed his upcoming album, Flamagra, with the release of its first single “Fire Is Coming” and its apocalyptic video, directed in collaboration with David Firth and featuring acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch. Now, Flying Lotus has shared two additional singles, “Spontaneous” and “Takashi,” in a smooth combo package. Deviating from the horror-like elements of the previous single, “Fire Is Coming,” Spontaneous / Takashi sits on jazzy, light-hearted foundations that ultimately make for a seamless listening experience. “Takashi” derives its name from Takashi Kudo, an artist involved in the creative teamLab project that FlyLo visited in 2018.

The first track, “Spontaneous,” features vocals from Little Dragon, who croons, “Don’t you wanna test my love?” against a spacey atmospheric backdrop that transitions beautifully into the next track. Embellished with eclectic string sounds and equipped with a funky bassline, “Takashi” and its preceding track are oddly delightful, exuding day-off vibes at an alien beach.

With three singles revealed and each outstanding in their own stylistic and emotional intent, the rest of Flamagra and its spectrum of production remains a mystery, albeit an optimistic one.

Flamagra is set to release May 24 via Warp Records. FlyLo’s first album in five years, Flamagra will feature artists Anderson .Paak, Solange, Toro y Moi, Denzel Curry, Thundercat and more.
