Pharrell doesn't want to tempt fate, according to Flying Lotus. NME reports that the producer said that the "Happy" singer passed up an opportunity to be on FlyLo’s upcoming album You’re Dead! because of the heavy subject matter. "Pharrell wanted to contribute too," he said. "But he had issues with the kind of songs to write. He didn’t wanna make a self-fulfilling prophecy… he didn’t wanna write a song about death and then die the next day… and I totally respect that." Certainly the sense of macabre pervades the record, as indicated by FlyLo’s recent single "Never Catch Me" (“I can see the darkness in me in its quite amazing, life and death is no mystery and I wanna taste it”). Still, it’s not like Flying Lotus is short on people to work with: Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Herbie Hancock all feature on the new record, which is due out October 7th on Warp.
