My god, this gargantuineÂ N.A.S.A. album is going to take over the Hype Machine world. The next song to leak off their The Spirit of Apollo album (hits stores February 17th).
These two guys are fantastic, and they seem to be the most popular guys around. This new song features M.I.A., Spank Rock, and Santogold. It's called "Whachodoin?" You better be listening to this right now.

Now let's talk about the tour. Yes, there's going to be a tour. Though I'm only slightly confused. Is it not the massive list of artists participating on this album what makes it so interesting? Now, I know these two guys on the production — Squeak E. Clean (Spike Jonze's brother Sam Spiegel) and DJ Zegon (pro skateboarder Ze Gonzales) — are good... but aren't we all going bananas over the tracklisting? Let me give you a refresher course: Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O and Ol' Dirty Bastard will be on the same track ("Strange Enoug"),Â The Cool Kids, Ghostface Killah, DJ AM will lend their services on "They Mayor," and we've all heard Kanye, Lykke, and Santogold on "Gifted." The other tracks are just as impressive.
I just know that not all of N.A.S.A.'s buddies will be able to make the budget cut. So what kind of tour are we looking at? No one is sure yet — the eclectic duo have yet to revealed any information, other than the dates.
