Nearly half a decade has somehow elapsed since the last Flying Lotus album – the Grammy nominated You’re Dead!

During that intermission, the multi-disciplinary Los Angeles artist has remained in constant orbit, collaborating with Kendrick Lamar on the classic To Pimp a Butterfly, playing a key role in the production of Thundercat's Drunk and writing and directing the horror film Kuso. He’s also nurtured his Brainfeeder imprint into the most consistently innovative record label of the decade.

Enter Flamagra – a work that sweeps up every quantum advance and creative leap of the last dozen years of Lotus’ career and takes them even further.

Drawing the lines between the galaxies of funk, global dance music, hip-hop, IDM, jazz, soul, tribal polyrhythms and the beat scene of his hometown LA, Lotus creates a universe that is uniquely his own.

Flamagra spans a very generous 27 tracks, and boasts a long list of prominent collaborators, new and old: Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, David Lynch, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi and Solange.

An afrofuturist masterpiece of startling originality.

 Hold tight, Fire is Coming.

“I’d been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place. I’d always had this thematic idea in mind – a lingering concept about fire, an eternal flame sitting on a hill,” Lotus says. “Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people would go on dates there and some people would burn love letters in the fire.”
