George Clinton’s Parliament release first song in 38 years (ft. Scarface)


Funk legend George Clinton has stayed active in recent years, both on the road and in studio. His band Funkadelic last released an album in 2014, and he signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label as a solo artist in 2016 and has apparently been working on an album for the label, but his band Parliament has been very quiet with regards to music. That finally changed this week with “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me,” the first Parliament song in 38 years, which you might recognize from recent live shows. (Their last album was 1980’s Trombipulation.) The new song features Southern rap legend Scarface, and it’s a filthy dose of George Clinton’s trademark funk that fits in with his classics but also sounds totally fresh. Listen below.

George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic have the 2018 edition of their recurring Mardi Gras Madness Tour coming up, including shows at NYC’s BB King’s on Fat Tuesday (2/13) and Long Island’s Paramount on 2/18 (tickets). They were also recently announced for some festivals, including Treefort and Mountain Jam. Updated dates are listed below.
