Just last week, Flying Lotus dropped the Anderson .Paak-assisted single “More” from his forthcoming album Flamagra. Now, the musician has released the official music video, animated by Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe. In the animated sci-fi visual, FlyLo’s a space adventurer who eventually morphs into an organ tree that ends up in flames, while .Paak is a robot DJ. Watch it above.
Watanabe and Flying Lotus previously collaborated together on the animé short film Blade Runner Black Out 2022, released in 2017. The director revealed in a statement that he and Flying Lotus are working on an upcoming series called Carole & Tuesday.
Flamagra, Flying Lotus’ sixth studio album, will be 27 tracks long, with features from Little Dragon, Anderson .Paak, Shabazz Palaces, Denzel Curry, Tierra Whack, Solange, Toro Y Moi, and George Clinton. It is set to be released May 24 on Warp Records. Preorder it here.
