Flying Lotus Announces 'Flamagra' Album, Drops New Single 'Fire is Coming' Featuring David Lynch
Today (April 17) marks the return of Flying Lotus. After strumming together his 2014 album You're Dead, FlyLo is back with not only a new single but a release date for his forthcoming endeavor Flamagra.
"I'd been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place," says Flying Lotus in a statement. "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."
Lotus' first single is a spoken track titled "Fire Is Coming" and features David Lynch, with the visual helmed by David Firth and Lo himself. The visual features Lynch speaking to a group of wolf children. Lynch -- who appears as a half wolf/half human -- finds his face distorting during the telling of his story. The horror-filled narrative brings fear to the children, especially after Lynch's eyes become engulfed in flames. "The fire is coming, the fire is coming," he barks continuously.
As for Flylo, his upcoming album will be a bulky one, as it will include 27 tracks. The project will feature Solange, George Clinton, Tierra Whack, Anderson .Paak, Thundercat, Little Dragon, Shabazz Palaces, Toro Y Moi, Denzel Curry and more. There will also be a tribute track dedicated to the late Mac Miller titled “Thank U Malcolm.”
