Today Bassnectar drops his new album, Vava Voom, which is full to the eyeballs with collaborations and bass heavy tracks. Rolling Stone have just premiered the brand new video for the album's title track which features Lupe Fiasco lending his vox to the mix. See what you make of the head ache causing video after the jump. It features a lot of flashing images and fast moving warped imagery along with some hair throwing Herman Li would be proud of.
Over the past few years we've had some little musical gems from Bassnectar including some crazy remixes of the likes of Deftones and more. Today he's offering a new heavy track titled "Ugly" that features Amp Live and is as every bit belly shaking as you'd expect. His current project is getting the finishing touches and is titled Vava Voom but this track is sure to build up more hype for his its release. To grab it for yourselves and give it a listen just jump on over to his official Facebook page and give it a cheeky "like".
Vava Voom is expected for release on April 10th.
