Today Flying Lotus appeared on air with BBC Radio 6’s Gilles Peterson and introduced the first taster of his upcoming album You’re Dead! with the track ‘Moment Of Hesitation’.
Flying Lotus discussed the track during a short interview with Peterson in which he revealed the track’s personnel which includes jazz legend Herbie Hancock, ol’ buddy Thundercat and Kamasi Washington, a recent signee on Lotus’ Brainfeeder label. During the interview, FlyLo explains how You’re Dead! started life as a more traditional sounding jazz album and that much can clearly be heard in ‘Moment Of Hesitation’ as it blends Hancock’s piano flourishes with the producer’s trademark skittering percussion. You can listen here to the interview from the 1:07:06 mark while ‘Moment Of Hesitation’ begins from 1:11:12.
Further guests confirmed on this, his fifth record include Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Niki Randa of Blank Blue. You’re Dead! is released on October 6th on Warp records.
