    Flying Lotus has dropped an anime-inspired MV for his latest single, “More,” featuring Anderson .Paak. The clip was directed by Shinichirō Watanabe, who’s known for his work on popular animes like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.

    In the animated video, FlyLo is portrayed as a spaceman who crash-lands on a far-away planet. He wanders the strange new world and eventually crosses paths with the Cali rapper, who is depicted as a mysterious robot. After a brief exchange, the robot transfigures FlyLo into flaming, fleshy trees which then adorn the desolate landscape.

    “More” is the latest track from FlyLo’s forthcoming album, Flamagra, following “Fire is Coming,” “Spontaneous” and “Takashi.” The record is due out May 24.
