Thundercat Teams Up With Kenny Loggins & Michael McDonald

Longtime Flying Lotus collaborator Thundercat has released a new single; featuring classic 70s yacht rock icons Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald from The Doobie Brothers.

The result is a tasty jam called ‘Show You The Way’, featuring brilliant gospel chords and lush vocals all layered up. And that Kenny Loggins falsetto? Damn son.

Thundercat’s been building a solid catalogue of buzzy prog jams over the past few years, but this one really feels like it’s been drenched in sunshine. The way he whispers, “It’s your boy, Thundercat” over those retro synths is almost comical, but the trio manages to pull it all off with funk to burn.

They’ve released it with a music video that shows them performing the song to an amputee going through some grueling rehab. It all feels like a strange dream version of Dr Phil, and it’s oddly uplifting.

Watch the clip below, and you can also watch a pretty incredible performance of the gang playing ‘Show You The Way’ on The Tonight Show here.
