Thundercat Announces Third Studio Album 'Drunk'

The Grammy Winning singer/bassist Thundercat brings us to the "edge of darkness" on "Show You The Way." If you thought it was cool when Arcade Fire got Mavis Staples to sing on their latest single, Thundercat shows them who's boss, getting 80's pop legends Michael Mcdonald and Kenny Loggins to each sing a sultry verse on his new track. Upon first listen, I wasn't sure if Thundercat was just doing really good impressions of the singers, but apparently he's been a fan of theirs for years. He told Red Bull Music Academy Daily that after convincing Kenny Loggins that he wanted to work with him, and that he wasn't in-fact punking the singer, Kenny decided that Michael McDonald would also be a good fit for the track.

The track is funky and lighthearted, like a lot of Thundercat's music. Before each singer begins, Thundercat introduces them in a sensual MC voice, saying "Ladies and gentlemen Michael McDonald." The album title Drunk even toes the line between humour and sincerity. But one thing is for sure, Thundercat has some very serious collaborators on this upcoming album with artists like Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell and Kamasi Washington. You can pre-order the album now, with an expected release date of February 24th.
