Anyone else just see him at the Fox Theater? His performance was WAY different than the three other times I've seen him. He surprisingly rapped a lot and only a few songs were from his first three albums.

This promo video for the new album is fucking fantastic; sounds like a return to Cosmogramma's space-funk odyssey, which has me very happy. Maybe I missed it in Spooks' copy pasta, but will there be full-length animations for each song?

This one, it turns out, was initially a jazz record, but two years later, the final product contains everything from prog time signatures to hip-hop verses, all unified as a 38-minute journey into and about the concept of death. "In the end, I thought to myself, 'I want to make an album that only I can make,'" he says
How much should a listener consider the concept when they play the record?
Completely. Every decision that I made was because of the concept. There's no loose ends in this record. There's no like, "Oh, I'm just gonna put this on the album because it sounds dope." There were a lot of tracks I could have put on there – like club tracks, bangers, whatever – but they didn't fit conceptually so there was no point. I'm not gonna call the album You're Dead! and be like pop singles and shit, wobble bass and whatever.
