"Thunderclouds" is a song by pop music group LSD. The song was released on 9 August 2018,[2] and marks the group's third release, following "Genius" and "Audio".[3]

The song was used as the main theme song for the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 promotional campaign, being featured extensively in parts in the company's ads, as well as at the reveal event in New York on 9 August 2018.[4]

Music video[edit]

The official music video for the song was released on 30 August 2018. Billboard's review called the video "super trippy" and described it as follows: "The group travels across pink and purple skies inside a flying red car piloted by Diplo and housing a living Sia puppet. Labrinth flies on his own personal cloud - a very common theme taken from Chinese mythology - while a mysterious candy-haired girl, played by Maddie Ziegler, dances on top of the car with a Sia-inspired hair-do. The party encounters thunderstorms along the way. … With the power of love, the group eventually finds their way out of the storm and returns to the dazzling pink-clouded skies."[5]
