The electronic producer already appears to have a busy 2017 ahead of him, with his debut feature-length film Kuso set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next week. FlyLo will also play a high-profile slot at Field Day festival in London in June.
News of the collaboration only emerged after Twitter user Dylan Mawby tagged both Flying Lotus and .Paak in a tweet, where he contemplated the notion of the two artists working together. “The world needs an
@AndersonPaak and @flyinglotus track. Maybe throw a little Captain Murphy [FlyLo’s other moniker] on there for good measure,” he wrote.
Flying Lotus then responded to the tweet, saying: “It exists! Soon.” .Paak followed up that tweet to further confirm the collaboration, writing: “They not ready!!!”

.Paak, meanwhile, will follow up his break-through year in 2016 with a high-profile stint supporting Bruno Mars on the latter’s world tour – although it has not yet been confirmed which dates .Paak will play on Mars’ tour.
.Paak has also been nominated for two Grammy Awards – Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album for ‘Malibu’ – with the winners set to be announced on February 12.
