It’s always a great day in the morning when new Thundercat sticks a landing. On the heels of his yacht rock supreme lead-off single “Show You The Way,” Thundercat has shared a new cut off his forthcoming album, Drunk.

Picking up right where “Oh Sheit It’s X” left off, “Friend Zone” is basically the buoyant, lovelorn extension of the uptempo Apocalypse standout; a dizzying, stank-face-inducing exhibit of dance floor fodder, ripe and ready to escort you into your Valentine’s Day romantics. Hear the latest from Thundercat down below and scroll on to peep his full list of winter and spring tour dates. Pre-order your copy of Drunk on iTunes ahead of its official February 24th release.
