Not everyone is a big fan of electronic dance music (believe us, we’re part of that group), but when you take a DJ and mix it up with a well-known band, what you get might make you forget that you’re not a fan of that kind of music.
Yesterday, the official music video for Steve Aoki’s song, “Back to Earth” which features one of our favorite groups Fall Out Boy was released. The video tells the story of an alien girl (hence the name of the song) running away, and beating up, hunters who look like Boba Fett’s long-lost brothers trying to capture her. When she gets shot, and almost captured, a savior who reminds us of Bane (if he were good and dressed in white) comes to her rescue.
Watch the music video for the track below which we’re sure could have been a bonus track on American Beauty/American Psycho.
“Back to Earth” is featured on Aoki’s recently released record, Neon Future I which not only featured the collaboration with Fall Out boy, but also collaborations with Empire of the Sun’s Luke Steele, Will.i.am, Machine Gun Kelly, Afrojack, and pop star Bonnie McKee.
If you think that the pairing sounds weird, then you might be right, but for some reason the DJ and the band have joined forces for Aoki’s new song, “Back to Earth.”
The song which was released yesterday, is featured on Aoki’s recently released new album, Neon Future I available through Ultra Music.
While the fact that the two spectrum of the music world came together on a track might seem kind of weird, the band and the DJ had tweeted pictures (as seen above) earlier in the year from inside the recording studio confirming that FOB’s Patrick Stump and Pete Wentz were working on something with Aoki.
Check out “Back to Earth” below.
With Fall Out Boy on the list, it appears that Aoki’s new album has a wide range of guests including Luke Steele from Empire of the Sun, Will.i.am, Flux Pavilion, and Waka Flaka.
As for Fall Out Boy, the Chicago-boys recently released a new song titled “Centuries” which will be featured on their upcoming new album although all we know the lead single and that it’s slated for a Spring 2015 release date.
