Ahead of his widely hyped 2014 LP release, enigmatic LA producer Flying Lotus has this afternoon released brand new 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. Never Catch Me acts as a wonderful introduction to the forthcoming fifth LP release, and whilst speaking of You’re Dead!, Flying Lotus had some background to offer for fans: “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!’”.
Flying Lotus delivers his fifth album ‘You’re Dead!’ out Friday 3rd October 2014 on Warp Records via Inertia.
