Thundercat 2013

Thundercat, aka Stephen Bruner, will follow up his 2011 CoS Top Star-earning debut, The Golden Age of Apocalypse, with an album simply titled Apocalypse. Due out July 9th via Brainfeeder, Bruner’s sophomore offering spans 12 tracks and was executive produced by frequent collaborator Flying Lotus, who’s also the head of Brainfeeder.

An issued press release notes:

An Apocalypse, Thundercat pairs up with executive producer Flying Lotus to pull the veil back and reveal the simple truths of the cycle of life, for all its beauty and destruction. An album about loss and rebuilding, trying to gain something back, and capturing that moment of clarity where one finally finds feet back on the ground again.

For a quick tease, stream the voluminous, bass-friendly single entitled “Heartbreaks + Setbacks”.

Apocalypse Tracklist:
01. Tenfold
02. Heartbreaks + Setbacks
03. The Life Aquatic
04. Special Stage
05. Tron Song
06. Seven
07. Oh Sheit It’s X
08. Without You
09. Lotus and the Jondy
10. Evangelion
11. We’ll Die
12. A Message for Austin / Praise the Lord / Enter the Void

Outside of gigs with FlyLo, Thundercat will be touring alongside Nigel Godrich’s Ultraísta for a few dates next month.
