His new album, It Is What It Is, drops April 3rd.
Thundercat is roaring back. He just announced a new album, It Is What It Is, and shared a funky new track, “Black Qualls” with Steve Lacy and Steve Arrington. It Is What It Is was produced by Thundercat and Flying Lotus and will feature contributions from Childish Gambino, Lil B, Kamasi Washington, Ty Dolla $ign, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole, and comedian “rapper” Zack Fox. With a lineup like that it’s hard to imagine that It Is What It Is will be anything but what is.
Thundercat said in a press release:
“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that.” He added, “It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand… some things just aren’t meant to be understood.”
You can find “Black Qualls” from Thundercat on our Tasty! Jams playlists.
