Check out the video accompanying the song, directed by Flying Lotus (also known as Steve) and David Firth (the creator of "Salad Fingers"), below.
"I've been working on things for the past five years, but I've always been everywhere. I always had this theme idea in mind – a persistent concept about fire, an eternal flame on a hill, "Flying Lotus said in a statement. "Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people went there and some people burned love letters in the fire. So I went to this party and I heard David Lynch saying the words he ended up saying on the record. And I was like, "That's it, we're going in that direction."
Flamagra has a stacked list of guest contributors. In addition to Lynch, Solange, George Clinton, Terra Whack, Anderson .Paak, Thundercat, Little Dragon, Shabazz Palaces, Toro Y Moi, Denzel Curry and more appear on the new album. The album also features two songs in honor of the late Mac Miller: "Find Your Own Way Home" and "Thanks U Malcolm." Flying Lotus said of the album in a statement:
This album has been a haven for pain and trying to get the most out of it.
of this pain. Music can heal and, following this tragedy,
It reminded me of what I'm here to do. As we grow older, we begin to discover
what is our purpose and embrace it and I want to do good things
with my work. I want you to be able to help people in difficult times.
and inspire them to be creative.
