on August 02, 2017, 11:05am

 

Today, Thundercat has officially shared the first music video behind his newest album, Drunk. The clip is for “Tokyo” and finds the jazz fusion maestro paying homage to the Asian capital that he’s long admired.

Shot on location and directed by Jun Hanamoto-Hearn, it follows the musician born Stephen Bruner as he immerses himself in the Japanese culture — everything from sushi and video games to the electrifying nightlife. Watch it up above.

Thundercat has an extensive run of tour dates in North America and Europe coming up soon. He recently contributed to Shabazz Palaces’ latest release as well as Flying Lotus’ acclaimed horror film Kuso.
