26/365: “Show You The Way” by Thundercat feat. Michael McDonald & Kenny Loggins
I’m not sure that anyone was asking for a yacht rock revival but it’s here and there’s not a thing we can do about it. Frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator, Thundercat will be releasing his new album Drunk next month (February 24) and for the superb first single “Show You The Way”, he has enlisted the help of Kenny Loggins AND Michael McDonald. Other featured artists on Drunk will include Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa, and Pharrell. Go figure.
I like to imagine that Thundercat’s Drunk is a response to Katy Perry’s “Rise” single. Thundercat wins this staring contest 10 times out of 10. That man looks very determined. Don’t test a man who has the sheer force of will to make Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald sound relevant in 2017.
