Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat form new supergroup WOKE

Adult Swim’s 2015 Singles program has given the long-awaited comeback of Ghostface Killah and DOOM’s project DOOMSTARKS recently. The summer music series has now helped to facilitate another meeting of minds.

This week’s release, named “The Lavishments of Light Looking”, acts as the official debut of WOKE, a supergroup made up of Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat. The track was produced by Flying Lotus and much like its creators, has elements of hip-hop, electronic, jazz fusion, funk, and more. George Clinton also provides guest vocals on the song.

Listen to the song below or download it for free on Adult Swim’s official website.

WOKE is not the first time these artists have joined forces. Flying Lotus, Thundercat, and Shabazz Palaces have all worked together on various projects such as albums, tours, one-off tracks, and more.

Other 2015 Adult Swim Singles include songs from Slayer, Shabazz Palaces, Danny Brown and Clams Casino, Peaches, Swervedriver, Yung Lean, and Owen Pallett. Also, new Run the Jewels material is expected in coming weeks. You can download the tracks for free via Adult Swim.
