Thundercat Is Back With “Drunk,” Feat. Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald (!!) And A Song About a Cat

The new Thundercat album, “Drunk,” blends a wide range of sounds and features Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington, Pharrell and Wiz Khalifa.

Thundercat’s third full-length album, Drunk, just dropped — and it is full of the funky, eclectic songwriting and production the artist is known for. With major contributions from psychedelic hip-hop favorite Flying Lotus, the two artists, along with a slew of collaborators, create gorgeous, kaleidoscopic music. This album is sure to hook hip-hop fans, jazz aficionados and psych-rockers alike.

Unlikely contributors Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald show up on “Show You the Way,” as well as artists Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington, Pharrell and Wiz Khalifa. While the Loggins and McDonald contributions may make you giggle at the seemingly hipster irony, much like the Grizzly Bear/Michael McDonald 2009 indie rock collaboration, they work — they really, really work! It shouldn’t be a surprise — as Warren G proved it in 1994’s “Regulate” when he sampled McDonald’s “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every Time You’re Near)” — but it bears repeating and we’re certainly glad the collabs keep coming.

The album is cohesive, albeit a bit manic. Bouncing from fun to real, Thundercat quips “I’m safe on my block, except for the cops/Will they attack, would it be ‘cause I’m black?”

“Drunk” goes from upbeat and even funny to bleak politics and depression, and because of its slightly manic nature, the album requires a bit of time and attention to hear all the details. It’s worth the 23-song effort.

Did we mention there is a reprise of his love song to his cat, Tron? Thundercat, I will never stop loving you…
