Thundercat returns to New Orleans this fall on a North American tour following the release of his acclaimed February release Drunk.

The virtuosic Brainfeeder bassist and bandleader's cloudy jazz and pop-centric R&B arrangements span 23 songs and harmonize with album guests Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell, Kamasi Washington and Flying Lotus, as well as a resurrected Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins for the inexplicably gorgeous single "Show You the Way." The album has held the No. 1 on WTUL-FM's rotation for several weeks.

He's at Tipitina's Oct. 6. (He'll also be at the Varsity in Baton Rouge Oct. 8.) Fan club presale opens today through 10 p.m. May 19. A Spotify presale opens 10 a.m. May 17 through 10 p.m. May 19.

Thundercat was among the headliners at the 2017 Buku Music + Art Project, and he recorded a set at One Eyed Jacks in 2014 as part of Pitchfork's Nightcap series.
