Thundercat has released a charming animated music video for ‘Song Of The Dead’. You can watch it in the player above.
The video was directed and animated by Ryan McShane, also known as RY NO, who has been drawing pretty much since birth.
Ryan randomly tweeted some of his work out to the world back in 2013, which was picked up by Thundercat and resulted in a collaboration with the Brainfeeder label. “Thundercat and I started chatting over Twitter after that – fast forward to 2015, I’m working at digital ventures practice Josephmark and motion studio Breeder, and making pictures and music on the weekends.”
This video is the first visual release since ‘Them Changes’ back in July 2015, which saw slow-mo Samurai fights and an ominous Guinea pig.
‘Song Of The Dead’ is taken from Thundercat’s mini-album ‘The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam’, which was released on 22nd June 2015 via Brainfeeder.
Thundercat is playing three live shows later in the year if you’re lucky enough to be nearby.
