Of all the collaborations in Thundercat’s vast catalog, the Drunk jam “Show You the Way” with Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald might be one of the best. Here are two yacht/dad rock artists loved with a twinge of irony by modern listeners presented with the utmost sincerity by a respected bass virtuous. It’s that perfect blend of tongue-in-cheek and honest-to-goodness greatness that makes the track work so well.
Which is why the single’s new video succeeds as well. The clip follows a man with no arms as he learns to embrace life again with the help of the kind folks at TKM Wellness. But while he’s getting head massages and meditating by a waterfall, he’s also watching Thundercat, Loggins, and McDonald jam it out in a sea of clouds. What’s more, the video serves as a sequel to directors Katarzyna Sawicka and Carlos Lopez Estrada’s 2015 Thundercat collaboration, “Them Changes”. Check out the new clip above.
