    Last month, bass wizard Thundercat announced his upcoming album It Is What It Is and shared the track “Black Qualls”. Today, he’s back with a second single called “Dragonball Durag”.

    This latest track is one that mixes the musician’s wild bass skills with his wit and love of humor in music, incorporating elements of his love for the cult Japanese animé Dragon Ball Z.

    In a press statement Thundercat explained the song’s lighthearted sentiment, saying, “I have a Dragon Ball tattoo… it runs everything. There is a saying that Dragon Ball is life.”

    He went on to discuss the durag element, stating,

    “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.”

    Stream Thundercat’s “Dragonball Durag” below. The bass virtuoso is about to kick off a massive tour, with a few recently added tour dates in Europe and Japan. Check out a list of those new stops ahead, and grab tickets to any of the shows here.
