Thundercat shares new single “FairChance”, featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B, the third single off of It Is What It Is (Brainfeeder), out April 3rd. The new track, produced by Sounwave (Kendrick Lamar / TDE), shows off a more somber side to the upcoming LP. The sentimental “Fair Chance” thoughtfully reflects on the loss of a loved one, in this case Thundercat’s dear friend Mac Miller. As his own star rises, Thundercat notes how his connections, romantic or platonic, are never the same again. A strummed guitar wistfully carries him along, but the steady beat beneath it all keeps him grounded to this new reality.
“This song is about Mac… when he passed it shook the ground for the artist community,” says Stephen Bruner. “Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did.”
