The track is called “Black Balloons Reprise,” and it features an appearance from Flordia rapper Denzel Curry. The track samples a 1973 animated French film called Fantastic Planet. It’s a film that Madlib also sampled (on “Come on Feet.”)

.Right before releasing the track, FlyLo tweeted some details about the track, including the fact that he was inspired by Madlib and Egon, the founder of Now-Again Records.
