Flying Lotus Releases “Spontaneous”, “Takashi” Off Forthcoming ‘Flamagra’ LP [Listen]


Last week, experimental electronic producer Flying Lotus announced the upcoming release of his latest album, Flamagra, his first LP since 2014’s Grammy-nominated You’re Dead! The new album is set to arrive on May 24th via Warp.

Flamagra features an all-star cast of guest contributors including George ClintonAnderson .PaakSolangeTierra WhackThundercatLittle DragonToro Y MoiShabazz PlacesDenzel Curry, and more.

Following the release of Flamagra‘s first single, “Fire Is Coming”, Flying Lotus (a.k.a. Steven Ellison) has released “Spontaneous” and “Takashi”, a pair of new singles ahead of the LP’s late-May release. “Spontaneous” features Little Dragon vocalist Yukimi Nagano singing over a mystical, synth-heavy loop before smoothly flowing into “Takashi”, a bubbly number slathered with elements of hip-hop, pop, R&B, house, and more. Listen to Flying Lotus’ latest single releases, “Spontaneous” and “Takashi”, below:

The new album will also feature two songs, “Thank U Malcolm” and “Find Your Own Way Home”, that pay tribute to the late Mac Miller. As Flying Lotus notes in a statement,

This album has been a refuge for pain and trying to make the most out of that pain. Music can heal and in the wake of that tragedy it reminded me what I’m here to do. As we get older, we start to figure out what our purpose is and embrace it and I want to do good things with my work. I want it to be able to help people through tough times and inspire them to be creative.
