Thundercat: Song For The Dead
on 22 June 2016
It's been exactly one year since Thundercat's six-track album The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam (featuring the poignant, sad-funk song "Them Changes") was released, and with the anniversary comes a new music video. "Song For The Dead" was drawn by Ryan McShane—who met Thundercat via Twitter—and blends NASA footage with animations of the caped musician, a pack of wolves, and his trusty bass guitar. Both the track and visuals lend themselves to introspection—blending ethereal views with a touch of pathos. Catch him performing with his Brainfeeder crew (Flying Lotus, Funkadelic featuring George Clinton and Parliament, Shabazz Palaces) in Oakland and LA this September.
