Titled “King of the Hill,” the track finds Thundercat’s bass and BadBadNotGood’s jazz-tinged production coming together, creating a slow-churning head-bopper that’s accompanied by additional production from Flying Lotus.

The song is one of 36 tracks a part of Brainfeeder X. Twenty-two of those tracks are previously unreleased. The compilation will also include “The Lavishments of Light Looking,” a one-off track from the supergroup WOKE — FlyLo, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat (featuring George Clinton).

Prior to “King of the Hill,” FlyLo dropped a remix of Brandon Coleman‘s “Walk Free.” Brainfeeder X is out November 16. It will be available digitally, as a 2xCD, and as a 4xLP vinyl box set. Check out the tracklist below.
