It’s been a quiet five years for iconic, experimental producer Flying Lotus but now he’s back with an absolute vengeance, announcing new album Flamagra that has a stack of huge features.
The colossal, 27 track album features vocals from the likes of Solange, Thundercat, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, Anderson .Paak, Toro y moi, Little Dragon and more.
Alongside the album, Lotus has also dropped the first song from it, titled ‘Fire Is Coming’ which features David Lynch. Yep, that David Lynch.
Of the album, Lotus released a statement on how it all came together.
“I’d been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place,” he said.
“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.”
Watch the Steven Ellison & David Firth-directed video for ‘Fire Is Coming’, and check out the Flamagra cover and tracklist, below.
Flamagra is out Friday, 24th May on Warp Records.
