17 March 2020, 16:49 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Thundercat has recruited Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B for new track "Fair Chance", which will feature on his forthcoming LP It Is What It Is.

"Fair Chance" is the third single to be lifted from Thundercat's new album, after previous singles "Dragonball Durag" and "Black Qualls" featuring Steve Lacy and Steve Arrington.

Thundercat says of the new offering, "This song is about Mac… when he passed it shook the ground for the artist community. Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did."

It Is What It Is is co-produced by Flying Lotus and Thundercat, and features collaborations with Louis Cole, Kamasi Washington, and more.

The new record will follow on from Thundercat's 2017 LP Drunk.

Stephen Lee Bruner, aka Thundercat, says of the new record, "This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that. It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek, but at different points in life you come across places that you don’t necessarily understand… some things just aren’t meant to be understood."

"Fair Chance" is out now. Thundercat's It Is What It Is album drops via Brainfeeder Records on 3 April, and is available to pre-order now.
