Flying Lotus

Late last month, Flying Lotus finally announced his fifth album, You’re Dead! (that’s its trippy cover art above) and now we’ve got some more news on it, including its guest stars. Not surprisingly, the album features appearances from Brainfeeder acolyte Thundercat, and Captain Murphy (which is really just FlyLo’s alter ego), but then there are some real shockers such as Snoop Dogg, Angel Deradoorian, Kendrick Lamar, Niki Randa, and jazz great Herbie Hancock. Check out the full tracklist, plus a very violent and surreal animated album trailer (based on the gory “guro”-style manga of Shintaro Kago), which teases a few very nice-sounding songs.

  1. Cool indeed. Definitely excited to hear more.

  2. Wow.

  3. This is way better than a low-quality leak from a cell phone. Cough. Kanye West. OWWWOOOOOOOOOO!

  4. Hhhhhhmmmmm gimme.

  5. sounds good so far but i was hoping for a little more jazz and a little less cosmogrammy bloopity bleepity noise.. we’ll see i guess

    • I thought there was a pretty good amount of jazz, especially in the beginning of the video. Actually I was surprised to enjoy that aspect so much. I absolutely love Cosmogramma and have never thought of him as overly jazzy despite his pedigree.
