Thundercat drops new single “Dragonball Durag”

This April, Thundercat is due to release It Is What It Is, his first full-length project since Drunk came out back in 2017. We've already heard lead single "Black Qualls," a megawatt collaboration with Steve Lacy and Steve Arrington. His newest is all him, though — it's a track called "Dragonball Durag" that finds the L.A. funk musician dialing up the charm and slipping into something comfortable.

"It's imperative. I guess the best way to describe it is either you got one or you don't," Thundercat told Zane Lowe of the track in a Beats 1 interview this morning. "If David Beckham met the Prince in a durag, we're not playing no games. You gotta have a durag in your wardrobe." Hear their full conversation, and stream "Dragonball Durag," below. It Is What It Is is out on April 3 via Brainfeeder.
