It's out on April 3rd...

Thundercat will release new album 'It Is What It Is' on April 3rd.

The American artist reached a new level with 2017 album 'Drunk', following this with a phenomenal global tour.

One of the most dexterous musicians on the planet, Thundercat is now ready to launch a fresh chapter.

New album 'It Is What It Is' hits home on April 3rd, with Thundercat set to play London's Roundhouse on April 9th.

Overseen by Thundercat and Flying Lotus, the record features an incredible cast, including Ty Dolla $ign, Childish Gambino, Lil B, Kamasi Washington, Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole and Zack Fox.

Thundercat comments:

“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that. It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand… some things just aren’t meant to be understood.”

Ultra-funky new single 'Black Qualls' is online now, matching his depth of musicality to an embrace of infinite possibility.

Guest starring Steve Lacy and funk god Steve Arrington, it's a sublime return from Thundercat.

Tune in now.
