Earlier this year Thundercat (a veteran of Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder imprint) won his first Grammy award for his contribution to 'These Walls' from Kendrick Lamar's opus To Pimp A Butterfly . He also guested on Comedy Central's Why? With Hannibal Buress ; cult late-night talk show The Eric André Show and premiered the animated video for Song For The Dead via Adult Swim
'Bus In These Streets' - a comedic ode to our dependence on technology - is the first new music from the virtuoso bassist and singer-songwriter since 2015's The Beyond… Where The Giants Roam - a mini-album that featured the alt. anthem 'Them Changes' (10 million + streams worldwide). The track features Thundercat (vocals, bass); Louis Cole (keyboards, drums, programming); and Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus (programming, editing). The artwork is by Thundercat's friend Bootymath.
Thundercat joins Flying Lotus, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Shabazz Palaces and The Gaslamp Killer at the upcoming Brainfeeder Showcase at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on 17th September 2016.
