Flying Lotus‘ new album is officially going to be extra weird.
Flamagra is Steven Ellison‘s sixth full-length, and the latest single, “Fire Is Coming” sees the LA beatsmith teaming up with David Lynch. If that’s not enough, the acclaimed director of films like Mulholland Drive and cult TV series Twin Peaks also stars in it’s video clip, dressed in some sort of wolf costume.
Unsuprisingly, “Fire Is Coming” is a disorientating and haunting listen. Flying Lotus’ dead-pan spoken word floats over a bed of sombre atmospheres, his lyrics summoning cinematic sound effects that twist into broken melodies over a medley of of tripped-out beats.
Flamagra is set to drop via Warp on May 24 and features a string of collaborations from the likes of Solange, funk godfather George Clinton, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat and more. It can be pre-ordered here. Check out Flying Lotus’ remix of Twin Peaks‘ iconic opening theme song here.
