Watch: Trailer for Flying Lotus’ New Album ‘You’re Dead!’

Flying Lotus has just announced the follow-up to Until the Quiet Comes, called, You’re Dead! After months of teasing, the artist announces an official release date, as well as a trailer for the album. FL presents some seriously trippy imagery with artwork by Shintaro Kago and animation by Strangeloop.

This was the first time I ever really went in and made a record with ideas beforehand. The “You’re Dead!” thing was kind of a joke at first, but I wanted it to be the thread of where everything was coming from. I wanted to write from that place, I wanted to write music from that world first, instead of it being, regular Flying Lotus. I wanted to say, “OK, you’re dead. Now what?” [laughs] Or songs about death – Thundercat and myself just started writing a bunch of stuff that started fitting into that world. And not all of it sounded like hard bop after a while.
