BLACK CAT

Electro-comic McQueen (Comedy Central, Funny or Die) released his chart-topping debut album, Black Cat, in the fall of 2019. A genre-defying album born of fever dreams where unforgettable characters exist and comingle with David Bowie, Kevin Costner and Harry Potter – and are sound-tracked by triptastic narratives and soundscapes – it’s Daft Punk meets Weird Al, as McQueen creates original music with beats and comedy.
