Watch Flying Lotus’ video for “Coronus, The Terminator”

Flying-Lotus-Coronus

Flying Lotus’ latest work is controversial and vivid, as are so many of his videos. The video, “Coronus, The Terminator,” builds slowly and centers around a dying man and the afterlife that comes for him.

But “Coronus” also features a soulful, gorgeous and haunting chorus. “The days of men are coming to an end,” they sing.

“Coronus” is one of Flying Lotus’ most powerful songs to date.

A message from Flying Lotus:

““For me, Coronus is one of the most important moments on ‘You’re Dead!’ and holds ideas im planning to explore in my future work. I’m happy that the visual encapsulates the meaning of the record and this ambition,” he says in a press release.

Flying Lotus just started a BBC Radio 1 residency on Jan. 15, which continues the second Thursday of each month through June. He’s on sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight.

Flying Lotus will be heading to Coachella 2015 and Governors Ball, as well as Bonnaroo. He’s also going to headline a show at Brixton Academy in London.
