When was the last time we heard from Flying Lotus second self Captain Murphy? Well, in a roundabout way, more recently than you thought: last year FlyLo revealed that Kendrick Lamar had taken the beats he had been intending to use on the next Captain Murphy album; as you know, these beats ended up becoming those used To Pimp A Butterfly.

As for a concrete appearance from the animated rapper that is Captain Murphy, he was last heard on FlyLo's 2014 album, You're Dead! — now the musicmaker himself has confirmed via Twitter that Captain Murphy will be back in our lives next year.
