After collaborating with Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat for a new group called WOKE last year, George Clinton has announced that he will be releasing a new album on Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label in 2017. Clinton and Fly Lo announced the news Tuesday on KCRW, Los Angeles' National Public Radio affiliate. When asked what fans could expect from the new project, Clinton answered, "As always, we expect to tear the roof off the sucker.”
Both Clinton and Flying Lotus further confirmed the news on Twitter. Flying Lotus wrote, "So dope. The legend @george_clinton will be joining the @BRAINFEEDER family," while Clinton replied, "Woof." Clinton will be joining Flying Lotus and his Brainfeeder labelmates for shows at the Hollywood Bowl and at the Fox Theater in Oakland this fall.
