Steve Aoki Announces Double Album ‘Neon Future,’ Drops Lead Single “Rage The Night Away”
You didn’t think Steve Aoki was dropping this monsterous single randomly… did you? Yes, “Rage The Night Away” featuring Waka Flocka Flame is now officially out on iTunes, and will be a staple in playlists across the country for months to come. You can hear it in full after the jump.
But the bigger news is that this is actually the lead single from Steve Aoki’s just announced upcoming album Neon Future! And not only that, but it will be TWO albums. Neon Future I is due out this summer, August 12th, and Neon Future II should be released early 2015 via Dim Mak / Ultra Music.
Part one will feature collaborations with Fall Out Boy, Empire Of The Sun, will.i.am, Flux Pavillion, Bonnie McKee, Machine Gun Kelly, and of course Waka Flocka.
“When I think of the dance world, I think of how it’s a colorful world. That, along with my fascination with futurism defined the concept of my new album, Neon Future,” says STEVE AOKI. “ I see the future in a more of a utopian sense, built through technology, music and color. These concepts became the driving force for the creation of my first double album.”
Also announced is a HUGE Madison Square Garden show to be played 4 days after the release of the first album, August 16th. Tickets go on sale May 9th.
