Flying Lotus (aka Steven Ellison) is releasing a new album, Flamagra, this Friday (May 24) via Warp. Now he has shared another song from it, "Black Balloons Reprise," which features Denzel Curry. Listen to it below, followed by Flying Lotus' upcoming tour dates.

Previously Flying Lotus shared a video for Flamagra's first single, "Fire Is Coming" (the song and video both feature David Lynch). Then he shared two more songs from the album: "Spontaneous" (which features Little Dragon) and "Takashi," a press release described the two songs as a "mini-suite."

Then he shared another song from it, "More," which features Anderson .Paak and was one of our Songs of the Week. Then he shared an animated video for "More" directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop). Watanabe and Ellison previously collaborated on Blade Runner Black Out 2022, the 2017 animated short film that was a prequel to the live action feature film Blade Runner 2049.

Flamagra is the first Flying Lotus album in five years, since 2014's You're Dead! The album also features George Clinton, Tierra Whack, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi, Solange, and others.

Ellison had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "I'd been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place. I'd always had this thematic idea in mind-a lingering concept about fire, an eternal flame sitting on a hill. Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people would go on dates there and some people would burn love letters in the fire."
