The wholly sick, goofy list of contributors to the forthcoming LP from N.A.S.A., the collaboration between Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon, is probably about a name or two away from critical mass: the point where individuals who go out and buy the album will have it explode all over them after they remove the jewel wrap. The Spirit of Apollo, slated for release on Feb. 17, that features contributions from Karen O, Nick Zinner, David Byrne, KRS One, RZA, George Clinton, Tom Waits, Kool Keith, Amanda Blank, DJ AM, The Cool Kids, Seu Jorge, Lovefoxxx, M.I.A., Scarface, Ghostface Killah, and Ol' Dirty Bastard, apparently has a track entitled "Gifted," which features Kanye West, Santogold, and Lykke Li.
Apparently, there is also a full-length documentary detailing the making of the album, and several animated music videos for the album's tracks have already been made by Shepard Fairey, Sage Vaughn, Mark Gonzalez, Barry McGee, The Date Farmers, Splunny, Marcel Dzama, and others.
At this point, it would be reasonable to expect the editors at Oxford's English Dictionary to wait for the album art to come out so they can place it next to the entry for "hype."
