Flying Lotus previews first new album in five years with David Lynch-assisted ‘Fire Is Coming’Flying Lotus 3d Live

Flying Lotus has unequivocally been one of the most diverse and prolific producers of the past decade. His range has known no bounds. From the hip-hop interludes between late-night Adult Swim shows, to his collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, and Thom Yorke, to heralding his own label and artistic collective, the Los Angeles-based visionary has consistently pushed the limits. Now, FlyLo is teasing his first new album in five years with the release of his unsettling new single “Fire Is Coming” featuring iconic filmmaker David Lynch. On his latest, it’s clear the artist lesser known as Steve Ellison is pushing once again, and this time, it’s well into the avant-garde.

The video, directed by the You’re Dead! producer and David Firth, lies the same realm of something one might find playing on an old TV in the Museum of Modern Art. In the new visual, David Lynch’s face twists and his eyes burn with fire as he tells a story from the mouth of a wolf in a wheelchair. His story is told to children adorned in fur. The score to this short film is in line with the visuals, it scratches and itches, it evokes an inalienable fear. The fear is that of the end or the impending notion of an apocalypse, which is a theme Flylo hasn’t been shy about in his previous works.

“I’d been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place. I’d always had this thematic idea in mind—a lingering concept about fire, an eternal flame sitting on a hill. Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people would go on dates there and some people would burn love letters in the fire,” says Ellison in a press statement.

Mortality and humanity have been themes in his work for many years and despite their subtle nature have drawn realists, dreamers, and optimistic nihilists towards his music and message in droves.

Though this preview could be described as “disturbing”FlyLo’s upcoming FlamagraLP does manage to boast an impressive list of features—Anderson .Paak, Solange, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Thundercat, Toro y Moi and more will grace the album. Flamagra is expected to release May 24 on Warp Records.

Hey, T: The New York Times Style Magazine — didn’t you say that Solange’s new album was “imminent this fall, probably sometime soon” last fall? Well, FUCK YOU, because “this fall” is now this winter, and this winter is now midnight, and midnight is actually a new day, today, March 1. Seriously, fuck you, T: The New York Times Style Magazine! LIARS!!!

Anyway, the good news is that Solange has finally released her new album, the follow-up to 2016’s excellent A Seat at the Table (one of our favorite albums that year — duh), no thanks to T: The New York Times Style Magazine. It’s titled When I Get Home, and it features 19 tracks, including five interludes and an intermission, all of which are designed, we assume, to let us catch our breaths. Guest contributors include Panda Bear, Playboi Carti, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Gucci Mane, Dev Hynes, and many more.
