Thundercat announces ‘Drunk’ album, shares new single

Thundercat

Thundercat has announced the release of his third full-length album “Drunk” on 24th February via Brainfeeder. The 23-track album includes guest appearances from Kamasi Washington, Pharrell, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Kendrick Lamer, Wiz Khalifa, and Brainfeeder boss Flying Lotus. “Drunk” is the follow-up to his highly acclaimed 2015 mini album “The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam”, and features recent singles ‘Bus In These Streets’ and ‘Them Changes’.

“Show You The Way” is the lead track from “Drunk”, and the slick yacht rock gem features two of Thundercat’s musical heroes Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald. Speaking to Red Bull Music Academy Daily, he explained: “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.” Loggins was the one that suggested bringing McDonald in on the track and, Thundercat adds: “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.”

Thundercat went on to say: “That song to me is about going down the rabbit hole, taking you to another place… On the edge of dark, there’s the brightest light. It means a lot to me in the sense of… the experience that I’ve had growing up with friends and people that I’ve been around where it’s inviting them into where I come from emotionally. Sometimes it’s a pretty intense thing. The point is how weird things can get. I feel like it’s very funny that, in a way, of course Michael McDonald and Kenny would be there.:
