Hopefully, it didn’t take Solange or Thundercat‘s respective co-signs to get you onboard with the unrivaled yacht rock wizard, Michael McDonald. Never forget, without “I Keep Forgettin’,” Warren G wouldn’t have anything to regulate. But we don’t have touch on McDonald’s widely-unsung imprint on r&b and pop and hip-hop by way of his late-seventies and early-eighties solo work. Another day’ll do.
Today, we’d like to point you towards a new interview with the former Doobie Brother, full of praise for Thundercat, having featured on the single “Show You The Way” along with Kenny Loggins, who apparently introduced the two, according to that same interview. McDonald reveals just how he and Cat came to be in such a mutually adored situation and speaks to the collaborations he has his sights set to, like Frank Ocean and Alabama Shakes‘ Brittany Howard. If you’ve yet to hear McDonald and Thundercat join forces, refer to the Brainfeeder bass man’s new album Drunk, available on iTunes and vinyl today. Hit the link below to read the full script of McDonald’s new interview and hold tight for his next transmission.
Jump back to watch McDonald and Solange perform his classic “What A Fool Believes.”
