Cats can drop albums now! At least, famous cats get the luxury. Lil Bub, the adorable 4-year-old feline with a stuck-out tongue, is releasing Science & Magic on December 4, and it looks like it's going to be great.

The album will undergo one pressing of 500 copies, each signed by the beloved Bub. Apparently a quarter of the proceeds will benefit the cat's Big FUND for the ASPCA, so you can feel a little less ridiculous about buying the thing.

Modern day punk icon Andrew W.K. released a statement about the record:

"It may seem impossible that a cat could compose an entire album of carefully crafted instrumental music, but BUB is not simply 'a cat.' She came from the deep unknown, on an intergalactic mission to help the people and animals of earth with her magic, talents, and otherworldly wisdom. I can attest to her power—the time I spent with her absolutely made me a better person.

The songs on this album are the soundtrack to BUB's universal adventure, and a soundtrack to the universe itself. You'll feel transported by the music's stimulating spirit, and taken to places beyond your imagination's limits, all the while experiencing the sonic aura of BUB's loving and compassionate presence. BUB is more than just a "muse"; she wrote this music and used the musicians on this album (BUB's dude, Mike, and his close friend Matt, who is also the official bubbysitter), as her creative vessels to get the music from inside of her spirit and into your mind. If it weren't for BUB, this music would not exist.

Cool stuff! Now get stoked on upcoming people music by flipping through our list of most-anticipated albums for fall 2015.
