Album: Apocalypse (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • The second single from bassist and vocalist Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner's sophomore album Apocalypse tells the true story of an MDMA-fueled New Year's party. "That party was one of the most epic things that has ever happened," Thundercat told Rolling Stone with a laugh. "Two and a half days of full-on shenanigans, man."
  • Apocalypse was produced by Californian experimental multi-genre music producer Flying Lotus. He said of this track: "I always loved this song, it's actually the oldest of the bunch. It's probably 2 years old. 'Oh s--t I'm fu--ed up,' you don't know what kind of battle I went thru to actually have those words come out on this album - he was like 'my mom is gonna hear that!!' I said 'that would be everyone's favorite part of the song.'"
