|Flying Lotus You're Dead! Limited Vinyl 2LP Set + Download
· Flying Lotus returns with ‘You’re Dead!’. At once reflective, restless, heart wrenching and joyous, this is a melodic ode to those who have died young, suddenly and unexpectedly, while also existing as a comfort to those mourning the loss of a loved one. ‘You’re Dead!’ serves as an exploration, a eulogy and a portal between the parallel
domains of life and afterlife.
· “Flying Lotus has become a standard-bearer for 21st century beat construction by looking forward and backward simultaneously and making music that feels like an exploration” - Pitchfork
· ‘You’re Dead!’ is set to be the greatest album Flying Lotus has released in his career. It is the first in which he provides vocals and raps as alter ego Captain Murphy.
· His influence on a variety of other artists is evident in the calibre of the musicians he has collaborated with for ‘You’re Dead!’. The album features Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Captain Murphy, Snoop Dogg, Angel Deradoorian, Thundercat and Niki Randa.
· The tracklisting was revealed through a bespoke Tumblr page that displayed art cards for each album track that were created by Japanese comic book artist Shintaro Kago, whose work can also be seen on the album cover.
