Flying Lotus’s new album ‘Cosmogramma’ will be out on May 4 and features Yorke as a guest vocalist. Self described as a ”space opera” this exciting record touches on every genre cornerstone associated with his name, an authentic embodiment of his unique musical heritage. The spirit of his famed aunt, Alice Coltrane permeates the record, notably in the powerful collaborations with respected sax player and relative Ravi Coltrane, bass virtuoso Thundercat and the brilliant harp prodigy, Rebekah Raff. Also collaborating is string arranger Miguel Atwood-Ferguson (who has worked with Erykah Badu & Outkast) and returning vocalist Laura Darlington.
