American super producer Flying Lotus, nephew of the late legendary saxophonist John Coltrane, has announced a three date UK and Ireland tour for Spring 2015. Flying Lotus, whose real name is Steven Ellison, will play dates in London, Manchester and Dublin, from April 17 to April 19.
Earlier this month, Lotus released his fifth album You’re Dead!, which features collaborations with US rappers Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg. The jazz element of the album, seemingly inherited from John Coltrane, is evident on most tracks on the album with a mixture of electronic and trip-hop giving the album a distinctive sound. You’re Dead debuted at #24 in the UK Album Charts when the album was released on October 6, with lead single “Never Catch Me”, featuring Kendrick Lamar, released on October 1.
Flying Lotus will play the following dates:
17 – London Brixton Academy
18 – Manchester Albert Hall
19 – Dublin Vicar Street
