Thundercat Contributes New Song to ThunderCats TV Series: Stream

Watch the animated video for "Grune's Tune"


Who better to write a new song for the ThunderCats reboot than the musician named Thundercat. The funk and jazz maestro born Stephen Burner has contributed a new song called “Grune’s Tune” to Cartoon Network’s ThunderCats Roar.

As Pitchfork points out, Burner’s song is about a villainous anthropomorphic saber-toothed tiger named Grune the Destroyer, of which he also voices in the series.

During a Comic-Con@Home panel on Thursday, Burner spoke about his life-long fascination with ThunderCats and revealed his musical moniker came about because he frequently wore a ThunderCats T-Shirt in the studio, leading Erykah Badu to refer to him as “Thundercat”.

Back in April, Thundercat released his fourth studio album, It Is What It Is, which featured contributions from Childish Gambino, Kamasi Washington, BadBadNotGood, Steve Lacy, and more.
