Thundercat Releases ‘Fair Chance’ Ahead Of ‘It Is What It Is Album’
Thundercat Fair Chance: Thundercat has today, dropped a new song titled ‘Fair Chance’, featuring Ty Dolla Sign and Lil B. This is well ahead of the release of his It is What It Is album, which is expected to drop on April 3rd.
It is presumed that the single was dropped to turn up the heat and increase anticipation for the album. He used the platform to pay homage to his friend Mac Miller who passed away from a drug overdose.
“When he passed it shook the ground for the artist community,” Thundercat had said in a statement. “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.”
The musician also took out time to explain the concept behind the album.
“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that,” Thundercat was reported to say.
“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.”
‘Fair Chance’ is a follow up to his last released ‘Black Qualls‘ single, on which he featured Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, and Childish Gambino.
Thundercat has also joined the league of artists to postpone their events due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. He shifted his North American tour with tour dates to be released later.
