On the back of a slew of tour dates around the world, Flying Lotus returns with a brand new visual set to ‘Black Balloons Reprise’ off of 2019’s acclaimed ‘Flamagra’.

Joining ‘Flamagra’ collaborators David Lynch (‘Fire Is Coming’) and Shinichiro Watanabe (‘More’), Jack Begert steps up to direct the seminal pairing between FlyLo and Denzel Curry. The video follows Curry as he takes a surreal ride through South Los Angeles, completing the final chapter of the ‘Black Balloons’ trilogy which includes the Miami Native’s own ‘Black Balloons’ and ‘The Blackest Balloon’. Against the city’s signature palm trees and freeways, black balloons rise to the sky as Curry and FlyLo are engulfed in supernatural imagery.

Speaking on the process, Begert praised the musicians’ vision as the creative impetus behind the video: “This is such a special project to me because it’s rare to work with an artist like Flying Lotus that truly has no creative boundaries. The same goes for Denzel. The two of them build such distinctive worlds with their visuals — I had a great time blending them together.”
