Lil Bub has collaborated with a lot of different musical artists in the past—including Andrew W.K. and Run the Jewels—but she has yet to release her own album. That's about to change: With the help of her human Mike Bridavsky—who is also a producer—composer Matt Tobey, and the giggly drummer Ben Lumsdaine, Bub created Science & Magic, which is slated to drop December 4 via Joyful Noise. The album, described as "the very first full-length concept album written by a magical space cat," has a chiptune-y sound featuring meow, purrs, and putters from Lil Bub.
Along with normal records, 500 VIP copies will be sold with original artwork and an autograph from the space cat herself. Twenty-five percent of all proceeds will go to Lil BUB's Big FUND for special needs pets, so you can know you're helping a good cause while jamming out to some feline space music.
Andrew W.K. wrote the press release, which begins:
My name is Andrew W.K. and I have had the privilege of working with BUB and making music with BUB and even holding BUB in my arms. Not only is she the softest creature I have ever encountered, she is also the most musically and compassionately gifted. The songs on this album are her vision. They are by her, about her, and are her. Listening to these songs is the sonic equivalent to holding Lil BUB in your own arms.
