STEVE AOKI
NEON FUTURE III
(album out 9 November 2018 through Liberator Music/Ultra Music)

Renowned for his adventurous attitude toward genre-defying collaborations, Aoki reveals the newest chapter in the Neon Future series – an ongoing thread of connected concept albums that delve into Aoki’s deep interest in futurism through technology and explores timely themes of singularity, biotechnology, electronic immortality and the symbiotic relationship between man and machine – Neon Future III, which serves as his most pop-driven project to date. This next instalment includes never before heard collaborations with blink-182, via their long-awaited collaboration ‘Why Are We So Broken’; Mike Posner, on the introspective ‘A Lover and a Memory’; and ‘Our Love Glows’ ft. Lady Antebellum. In addition, the album includes One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson’s global hit, ‘Just Hold On,’ which debuted at #1 in more than 40 countries and has since gone gold or platinum in 18 countries; Fifth Harmony’s Lauren Jauregui’s track ‘All Night’ which hit #1 on the iTunes dance chart; and the Spanish-language track ‘Azukita,’ featuring an all-star cast of Latin pop legends: Daddy Yankee, Play-N-Skillz, and Elvis Crespo, which is certified Disco de Oro & Platino Digital Single (Gold Disc & Platinum Digital Single) by RIAA in the US and the track was also certified gold in Mexico, Italy, Chile, and Argentina, and certified platinum in Spain. The new album is available for pre-order today and the full tracklist can be found below.

Outside of music, Aoki has been busy recently as the face of Diesel’s new Full Guard 2.5 touchscreen smartwatch which just launched on 9th October and participated in a panel for his just launched dystopian comic book series, Neon Future, which debuted at New York Comic Con earlier this month.
