"Dragonball Durag" is the second single to be lifted from Thundercat's new LP, after last month's "Black Qualls" featuring Steve Lacy and Steve Arrington.

Thundercat says of the new offering, "I have a Dragon Ball tattoo… it runs everything. There is a saying that Dragon Ball is life. There are two types of people in the world, the guy with the durag and the guy who doesn’t know what a durag is. The durag is a superpower, to turn your swag on… it does something, it changes you. If you have one in the wardrobe, think about wearing it tonight, and it may pop off because you never know what’s going to happen."

It Is What It Is is co-produced by Flying Lotus and Thundercat, and features collaborations with Ty Dolla $ign, Louis Cole, Lil B, 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."

"Dragonball Durag" 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. Thundercat plays London's Roundhouse on 9 April. Find out more.
