Tomorrow, Thundercat drops off his latest record, It Is What It Is via Brainfeeder Records. The project comes after a strong run of singles ranging from the Steve Lacy collaborative effort “Black Qualls”, the hilarious and star-studded Zack Fox-directed “Dragonball Durag” music video, and a song that saw Lil B and Ty Dolla $ign get emotional with a Mac Miller tribute in “Fair Chance.” Today, Thundercat reveals his fourth and final single, “Innerstellar Love.”

“Innerstellar Love” takes listeners on a galactic search for a soul mate with help in the production department from longtime collaborators Flying Lotus and Kamasi Washington. The track breaks down at the halfway point for a soulful solo from Washington’s tenor saxophone while Thundercat’s brother, drummer Ronald Bruner Jr. takes over percussion duties.

“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that,” Thundercat said in a recent press statement. “It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand… some things just aren’t meant to be understood.”

Stream “Innerstellar Love” below and be on the lookout for It Is What It Is to release tomorrow featuring additional guests like Childish Gambino, BADBADNOTGOOD and more. In other music updates, Grimes released a new music video for “You’ll Miss Me When I’m Not Around” featuring a green screen for fans to make their own edits.
