Flying Lotus is releasing an instrumental version of his Flamagra album

The artist has already dropped one of the reworked tracks, Black Balloons Reprise (Instrumental)

It’s been almost a year since Flying Lotus released Flamagra – his latest album and the follow-up to 2014’s You’re Dead! – which we first got to hear in May 2019. To celebrate, the musician will be releasing a new, instrumental-only version of the record. 

FlyLo has already shared one reworked track from Flamagra (Instrumentals): “Black Balloons Reprise”, which originally featured Denzel Curry

Other collaborators on the original version of the album included Anderson .Paak, Tierra Whack, David Lynch, and frequent collaborator Thundercat.

“Whereas the original album featured a dream cast of vocal collaborators, this project places the masterful arrangements, electronics and musicianship at the forefront,” reads a press release: “a treasured peek under the hood of one of today’s most consistently innovative producers.”

Flamagra (Instrumentals) releases May 29, with art from former collaborator Winston Hacking and artist Drew Tetz. Listen to the rework of “Black Balloons Reprise” below.
