Flying Lotus' forhtcoming album You're Dead! is one of Rhythm Lab Radio's most anticipated albums of 2014. It could be Flying Lotus' most innovative release to date. An album that started as a jazz album has transcended into a unique fusion of jazz, hip hop, and electronic music. You're Dead! not only features some amazing original artwork by Japanese comic book artist Shintaro Kago, but an impressive roster of guests including Herbie Hancock, Snoop Dogg, Thundercat, and fellow Californian Kendrick Lamar.
'You’re Dead!' is a shamanic pilgrimage into the psychedelic unknown of the infinite afterlife. A sonic, visual and metaphysical fusion of technological innovation and technical virtuosity that amounts to a transcendent, mind-expanding plasm that could only exist between our world and another.
Yesterday, a radio station debuted the Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar collaboration called "Never Catch Me." If you were expecting the typical hip hop banger, think again! Take a listen below.
Flying Lotus' album You're Dead will released on October 6 via Warp Records.
