The enigmatic Flying Lotus has always been one to push the bounds of music in the name of artistic exploration. He’s the co-creator of a slew of short films that are sometimes extreme and NSFW, but always creatively inspired, and has been just as prolific with his visual output as his audio productions. Now, he’s combining those visions once more to bring his 3D tour across North America, and has timed the launch with the release of a new record featuring the red-hot Anderson .Paak.
A smooth, jazzy cut that perfectly complements .Paak’s effortless swagger, “More” is one of the singles off of FlyLo’s forthcoming album, Flamagra, due out May 24. Flying Lotus’ off-kilter production style is in full effect and Anderson .Paak delivers powerful rap verses over the mellow, head-nodding instrumental.
Also featured on the album will be Little Dragon, Toro Y Moi, Solange, George Clinton and more. It comes as no surprise that he can command such powerful guest appearances, owing to his revered status among music creators and fans.
The album will be his first full-length project since the acclaimed 2015 You’re Dead! and will kick off a tour this summer.
