Fresh Music Friday: Thundercat - Show You the Way featuring Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins
“I’ve always tried to hold true to what Erykah Badu and Flying Lotus told me: It has to come from an honest place. I feel like it’s a place that I’ve been in different ways. Seen different angles of and it’s been a bit inspirational, the drinking. It has its ups and downs and everything, but I felt like it showed the human side of what goes on behind things. Something that I see with all of my friends. I’ve witnessed a lot of my friends’ passings. I felt like it was kind of interweaved in the music culture. And it’s something that’s never talked about.” - Thundercat via Red Bull Music Academy
Remember that feel-good R&B-Soul music back in the 90s? The kind of songs that wasn't overly lovey-dovey or depressing? That’s the vibe Thundercat’s latest single “Show You the Way” provides for the listener; easy –listening and chill. Plus! Plus! What’s very brilliant about this track is that the Los Angeles-based producer/bassist/singer enlisted to soulful legends for this track: Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins. Very excellent collaboration, Thundercat.
“Show You the Way” is from his newest album release, Drunk.
