Thundercat Releases New Album, Titled ‘It Is What It Is’
Thundercat It Is What It Is: Thundercat has released a new album titled ‘It Is What It Is‘ and it is his fourth LP since his last project in 2017, titled ‘Drunk‘. This new album consists of 15 tracks and features notable artists on several tracks.
For instance, we have Louis Cole on ‘I Love Louis Cole’. Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington and Childish Gambino on ‘Black Qualls’. Zack Fox jumped on ‘Overseas’ while Ty Dolla $ign flexed lyrical muscle with Lil B on ‘Fair Chance’.
For the final set of tracks, we had Pedro Martins. Flying Lotus, Kamasi Washington, and Ronald Bruner Jr were also included in ‘Innerstellar Love’.
According to our sources at Hypebeast, Thundercat released a press statement concerning this album.
“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.”
One noticeable feature which is also remarkable in the album is that it had the central theme of loss and on two tracks, ‘Fair Chance’ and ‘It Is What It Is’ were tributes to his deceased friend, Mac Miller.
