As the sun rises over Chicago and Mother Nature finally gives us some Spring time love, the announcement of Bassnectar’s new album might just be the icing on the cake to the start of a perfect day. All winter long, the bass god himself has been crafting his upcoming album, #NVSB, that is set for release on June 24, 2014. This is the second time I have seen an artist use a hash-tag in a song or album title and honestly, I think it’s a brilliant social media idea. The first song to drop from #NVSB is a track called “Now ft. Rye Rye” which is available for free download. This track has Bassnectar written all over it with his version of a souped up trap hit featuring Baltimore MC, Rye Rye. This song is beautifully arranged to include a slowed down chorus that brings in some R&B flavor. Bassnectar describes his new album as every song having a distinct point on a very unique spectrum and this is our first stop on our journey. This is only the beginning and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us for Summer 2014.
