Flying Lotus Shares Some Insights Into His Upcoming Erykah Badu Collaboration
Now, courtesy of my old friends at the Colorado Springs Independent, we've got some insight into the project. Bill Forman, music editor of my old rag, recently caught up with Flying Lotus in advance of the performer's stop along the Front Range of Colorado. And the very first questions he asked? All about Badu, natch.
No word yet on when we can expect the collaborative project's release, but, still, check out an excerpt from the interview -- in which FlyLo describes his work with Badu as something like universes colliding -- after the jump.
So I understand Erykah Badu is among the artists who've sat in with you recently. How's that album you're doing with her coming?
It's dope, man. I feel like I'm taking it where I need to go, and she's taking it where she needs to go. Yeah, I think it's cool, you know? Our universes collide and we make a very beautiful thing happen hopefully.
She's a pretty deep person, and not just musically. Have you two gotten much of a chance to talk?
Absolutely, yeah, it's a good match. We both vibe on some very serious stuff. You know, there's always connections beyond the music. It's like we come from similar places spiritually. Right out of the gate, we were like, "Oh yeah, we're from the same tribe, ain't we?"
