Thundercat is preparing to release a new mini-album next week (June 22), via Brainfeeder. Titled The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam, the six-track mini-album follows his 2013 album Apocalypse, and features some impressive personnel, including Herbie Hancock, Flying Lotus, Kamasi Washington Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Mono/Poly. A press release describes the EP as six spiraling excursions to the outer limits of jazz-funk,” and the first track released from the EP—”Them Changes,” produced by Flying Lotus and featuring Kamasi Washington—bears that out nicely.
