Hopefully this isn’t some sick April Fools joke, but MF DOOM and Flying Lotus have just announced a joint LP together titled Mask Of The North Star. Guest collaborations on the album are as expected, with Madlib’s Quasimoto making an appearance on the track “Memories of Green”, El-P and Thom Yorke appear together on “Police State” (holy SHIT), and Thundercat is literally all over this record, just as he is on FlyLo’s You’re Dead! and Kendrick’s recent masterpiece To Pimp A Butterfly.

Mask of the North Star drops May 5. Peep the tracklist and album art below.

UPDATE: Well, as suspected, FACT Magazine posted this up as an April Fools joke. What a crude, crude joke to play on us all. They also noted the last tracked being called “Baloney,” but that totally does sound like an MF DOOM song title! Flying Lotus also played along:
