FlyLo has shared two new singles that are included in the soundtrack for the upcoming Netflix anime “Yasuke.”
The tracks see Thundercat on “Black Gold” and Niiki Randa on “Between Memories.” Yasuke is three years in the making and is created by Bronx-bred and Japan-based television animation creator, producer, and director LeSean Thomas, while FlyLo served as an executive producer and story consultant alongside MAPPA Studios.
“[LeSean] and I talked about being outsiders in anime,” the producer said. “I was like, ‘Why aren’t more Black kids trying to do this? Why is it so out of the ordinary?’ He was saying that it’s because they don’t have examples.”
You can stream “Black Gold” with Thundercat and “Between Memories” with Niiki Randa on Spotify and Apple Music below. Yasuke premieres April 29 on Netflix.
