Thundercat, "Show You The Way"

Thundercat shows us the way with the latest trippy video from his acclaimed album, Drunk. This time around, he teams up with yacht rock icons Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins for the visuals to their unexpected collabo “Show You the Way,” a slow-fizzing funk track that is no joke.

Pop stars like Katy Perry tend to insert adult contemporary icons (Kenny G) into their songs for a wink-wink joke that they make sure to show us they're clearly in on. But Thundercat forgoes leaning on the dichotomy between schmaltzy balladry and hook-infused pop and just genuinely gels with McDonald and Loggins, enhancing their strong vocal colors through his own musical idiosyncrasies.

The video takes on a somber-turned-hopeful tone as it follows a double amputee who checks into a wellness center -- however, it retains absurdist touches as the three musicians appear on an old TV set while performing in front of a cloud backdrop.

Thundercat will wrap up his North American tour at the Red Bull Music Academy Festival with Flying Lotus at LA’s Hollywood Forever on Saturday (Oct. 14). Here’s a list of his remaining tour dates:
