Herbie Hancock Recording New Music With Flying Lotus And Thundercat


Herbie Hancock has a new interview with Billboard and he revealed his current work on the untitled follow-up to 2010’s Imagine Project. He says that he is committed to finishing the new album, but he was not firm on whether recent recordings with Thundercat and Flying Lotus would be included on the record. Flying Lotus and Hancock have worked together before as the legendary keyboardist is on the current FL album, You’re Dead. Hancock mentioned a new kind of jazz scene that’s taking place and inspiring some of his ideas. He has also reached out to Pharrell Williams for a possible collaboration. In addition to discussing his new work, he expressed his gratitude for the National Arts Award from the Americans for the Arts he accepted Monday of this week.
