Flying Lotus and Erykah Badu making an album
Tue 30th Aug, 2011 Newsin
What happens when you put two of music’s skewed-but-brilliant minds in the studio together? We’ll find out the fascinating answer to that in good time, following the news that L.A. beat wizard Flying Lotus is teaming up with enigmatic soulstress Erykah Badu. The revelation came in an interview with Badu in The Wall Street Journal, where she also revealed there’s something cooking with the world’s biggest cartoon band.
“I’m making an album right now with a guy named Flying Lotus,” she said. “I’m working on a project with The Gorillaz. I’m always doing something.”
There isn’t much more to go on than that, but fans of both artists will surely be weighing up all the possibilities of how this’ll turn out. One thing’s for sure, the album won’t fall into the ‘pop techno cornball ass music’ category. FlyLo is of course locked in for the Summadayze and Summafieldayze circuit this festival season, so be sure to listen out for any hints of Badu’s voice colouring his sets.
