Flying Lotus shares ‘Never Catch Me’ featuring Kendrick Lamar from forthcoming album
Flying Lotus is truly an artist in his own league with musical vision that knows no bounds. His seemingly indefinable expertise plays a major role in the latest peak inside his forthcoming fifth studio album, You’re Dead!. Initially intended as a jazz-centric venture, the predetermined stylistic influence is mightily apparent in “Never Catch Me,” which features Grammy nominated, contemporary hip-hop elite Kendrick Lamar.
“Never Catch Me” champions an impressive combination of hip-hop, progressive rock and said jazz vibes, embedded within free-form drum patterns and a myriad of lively strings, synths and keys without evoking an overwhelmed feel. This dazzling, stylistically interbred piece provides highly suitable means for Kendrick to showcase his superior lyricism, later intensifying and adapting a more complicated, quick-paced rhythmic flow as he progresses deeper. Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar’s chemistry comes as no surprise due to their already enduring friendship, where both artists have expressed strong interest in involving the other’s artistries in their respective projects. Flying Lotus’s anticipated You’re Dead! is set to release on October 7th in the US on Warp Records.
