On the eve of his fifth album release, Flying Lotus has shared the incredible new video for his single ‘Never Catch Me’, featuring Kendrick Lamar. The dynamic single is somewhat of an odyssey; a warm introduction flanked by organic percussion bleeds old school hip hop vibes before Lamar takes over – slowly ascending into a jaunted but frenetic flow in sync with a flurry of instrumental chaos. The video takes an assured leap into the left-field themes of the album; life, death and redemption via the unknown. Speaking of the album, Flylo offered some choice words: “The album isn’t about the end, it’s really the beginning. It’s a celebration of the next experience. It’s the transition and the confusion. It’s not ‘hey you’re dead.’ It’s ‘hey you’re dead!’”.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lXD0vv-ds8[/youtube]
Flying Lotus will release You’re Dead! via Warp Records / Inertia on 3 October 2014. Following today’s official announcement, he will also be appearing on the 2015 St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival lineup – get the info HERE.
