THUNDERCAT SHARES NEW SINGLE ‘FAIR CHANCE’ TAKEN FROM “IT IS WHAT IT IS”, OUT 03 APRIL ON BRAINFEEDER
Thundercat releases ‘Fair Chance’ from “It Is What It Is”, out 03 April on Brainfeeder. The new track, produced by Sounwave (Kendrick Lamar / TDE), features Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B and reflects a more sombre side to his forthcoming album.
“This song is about Mac… when he passed it shook the ground for the artist community,” says Thundercat. “Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did”.
‘Fair Chance’ is the third track to be released from Thundercat’s forthcoming album “It Is What It Is” following previous singles ‘Dragonball Durag’ and ‘Black Qualls’ which featured Steve Lacy (The Internet) and Funk icon Steve Arrington (Slave). The forthcoming album – “It Is What It Is” – produced by Flying Lotus and Thundercat, also features musical contributions from Childish Gambino, Kamasi Washington, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole and Zack Fox.
“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that,” Bruner says about It Is What It Is. “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.”
Thundercat has had to postpone his North American and European headline tours due to the Coronavirus outbreak. The tour dates that have been postponed will be rescheduled – ticket holders please stay tuned for further announcements.
