Lorin Ashton AKA Bassnectar has a brand new album entitled NVSB with a scheduled release date of June 24. Die hard Nectar fans anxiously awaiting the album's release have been gifted with THREE singles in three weeks! "Now," the first single that dropped on May 6th, 2014 received some mixed reviews for the trappy direction Ashton took with the track. He responded to his fans via Twitter saying: To enforce his message, he followed up with the release of his second single, “Ephemeral," a track that brings it back to the sound we've come to expect from Bassnectar. Here's what he had to say about his second single, and upcoming album:
“Hello! Here is a gift of music! It’s called ‘Ephemeral’ (which means temporary, or “lasting only a day”…it’s the opposite of ‘Eternal’ and captures the essence of how precious every little moment is, and to enjoy it to the fullest) and I began working on it over 10 years ago. Each song off the upcoming record is totally unique from the other songs, representing one specific point across a very diverse spectrum. There is of course hard vs soft, deep vs wild, ugly vs pretty, dark vs light, noise vs beauty, and so on This song represents one of the warmest, softest, sweetest directions of my love affair with music: when it is light, and whimsical, and emotional – and reminds me to be grateful for every last detail in life. You can do whatever you want with this song: share it with friends or family, or hoard it for yourself, whatever you feel. Thanks and Enjoy!”
Today the THIRD single from the upcoming album is released! Premiered last night on Sirius XM, the track is a nice change of pace that really displays the diversity of the album. Give it a listen!
