Thundercat announces new album with shit-hot single, Show You The Way
His third LP, Drunk, is due February 24.
Yesterday Thundercat announced he'll be releasing his third LP, Drunk, on February 24 this year via Brainfeeder, and as if that wasn't already news to get excited about - the first single is an absolute jam. Show You The Way, featuring a couple of goddamn icons in Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald, is one of 23 (!) tracks coming on Drunk. We don't even know where to start with this. The track is a funked-up jam, and a chance for Thundercat to work with two of his heroes:
"These are guys that I've listened to and where I felt that I've learned that honesty in the music. Kenny Loggins is one of my favourite songwriters... I think one of the most beautiful moments was realising how amazing Michael McDonald is. He would go through so many ideas and have so much to offer."
Drunk will also feature Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell and Whiz Khalifa, and if we can jump the gun a bit, shaping up to be one of the year's highlights. Until we get more, try not to melt inside the world of Show You The Way, because it's pure aural sex.
