Baauer was ready to drop his upcoming second album PLANET & # 39; S MAD this Friday, June 5th – but given recent events, he's pushing the release indefinitely.
"I don't want to promote an album," he explains in the following article. "Push until idk when."
With everything going on in our world, the title of the album seems almost like an unknown premonition of the DJ / producer. Civil, political, environmental and health concerns are currently plaguing the planet – and at the moment Baauer is standing with those who are fighting racist injustices.
"Justice for George Floyd. Black lives count. Defund Disarm Demilitarize. "
From what we heard, PLANET & # 39; S MAD is an impressive sonic and visual experience – which so far has included the title track as well as "AETHER", "YEHOO" and "REACHUPDONTSTOP".
I don't want to promote an album. Slide until idk when. Solidarity with all who fight against racial injustice. Justice for George Floyd. Black lives count. Defund Disarm Demilitarize.
