Thudercat Drops Star Studded Album ‘It Is What It Is’

Thundercat is back with his highly anticipated new album, It Is What It Is. The new album is laced with a star studded guest features from the likes of Steve Lacy, Steve Arrington, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil B, Childish Gambino, Kamasi Washington, BADBADNOTGOOD, Louis Cole, Flying Lotus, and comedian Zack Fox.

Released via Brainfeeder, It Is What It Is marks Thundercat’s fourth overall studio album following the critically-acclaime Drunk from 2017.


Thundercat pushes the envelope showing casing his songwriting and bass playing prowess on the 15 track LP.

Yesterday he shared “Innerstellar Love,” from the album. The Grammy-winning bassist shared “Fair Chance,” a tribute to Mac Miller featuring Ty Dolla $ign two weeks ago. Thundercat said he never “missed the chance to tell the guy I loved him.”

“This album is about love, loss, life and the ups and downs that come with that,” Thundercat said of the record. “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.”
