Bringer of Funk George Clinton talked to Rolling Stone in a new interview about a wide range of topics including his upcoming album, which will be released via Brainfeeder, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Kendrick Lamar, working on To Pimp a Butterfly and much more. In another recent interview with HipHopDX Clinton, talking about Childish Gambino‘s new album Awaken My Love!, remarked, “It sounded like a cross between P-Funk and Prince influence. I’m proud that he’s into the funk and glad him and others are bringing some new funk back.” Speaking on his upcoming album, Clinton said “When Flying Lotus and Brainfeeder offered me the deal, he’s gonna be producing it with me, so I’ve gotta get with him to see what he’s gonna do. They have a whole ‘nother way of doing stuff. I don’t want me to be the one directing everything. I want to have whatever the new feel is. I get off on Parliament-Funkadelic. I do those any kind of way I feel like it. I’m in [Flying Lotus’] hands when it comes to [t]his.” Head to Rolling Stone to check out the full interview. Scroll down to peep tour dates.
