Stream New Single “Oh Sheit It’s X”
Thundercat just released “Oh Sheit It’s X,” the latest track from his forthcoming second album Apocalypse, due on Brainfeeder Records June 4 digitally and via CD/LP on July 9. The follow up to his hugely successful first single “Heartbreaks + Setbacks” sees Los Angeles bassist/songwriter/vocalist Stephen Bruner reteam with co-writers/co-producers Mono/Poly and Flying Lotus as they kick up the funk and get ready to party. The track is available for download instantly with album preorders via iTunes.
Forever a wildcat and wild card, Thundercat is impossible to tame artistically. His 2011 solo debut The Golden Age of Apocalypse, co-produced by Flying Lotus, created a genre-blurring enigma of indie rock and jazz, with a touch of electronica. On Apocalypse, Thundercat brings a fusion of pop, soul, electronica, prog rock and funk into an unexplored dimension. He again pairs up with executive producer Flying Lotus to pull the veil back and reveal the simple truths of the cycle of life, for all its beauty and destruction. It’s an album about loss and rebuilding, trying to gain something back, and capturing that moment of clarity where one finally finds feet back on the ground again.
Thundercat is currently serving as a studio mentor at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York City and heads back out on the road May 12 with Flying Lotus and Teebs.
