Thundercat is back, with his third full-length studio album Drunk due out at the end of February.
The 23 track epic boasts a starry cast of collaborators including his label boss Flying Lotus, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Wiz Khalifa and, on the first single Show You The Way, ’80s icons Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald.
The latter pair would seem unlikely musical partners for Thundercat, but it turns out that the Grammy Award-winning singer/bassist is a big fan of both of the yacht rockers.
“These are guys that I've listened to and where I felt that I've learned that honesty in the music,” he told Red Bull Academy Daily. “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.”
