Baauer announces 'PLANET'S MAD' film to accompany forthcoming LP

Although he became a household name only after the viral success of his hit single, ‘Harlem Shake’, Baauer fans know that the trap and bass innovator is so much more than the meme his inescapable song inspired. Boasting an impressive discography packed to the brim with genre-defining electronic music that has been featured in the likes of Super Bowl commercials and The Late Show, Baauer has established himself as an industry leader.

After an initial delay due to nationwide protests that followed the death of George Floyd, the formidable producer’s second album, PLANET’S MAD, is set to release on June 19, and excitement is naturally at an all-time high. To further spike anticipation, Baauer’s home label, LuckyMe, took to Twitter to announce the release of of a PLANET’S MAD film that will accompany the forthcoming LP.

On June 16, LuckyMe shared an official flyer for the film and followed this announcement with a psychedelic trailer that offered a glimpse of the visual journey to come. Featuring a bizarre combination of neon alien worlds and what appears to be some sort of trippy gecko rave, PLANET’S MAD is shaping up to be one of the most enthralling audiovisual experiences of the summer.
