Limp Bizkit has unveiled the video for their new single "Ready to Go," which features a guest appearance from Lil Wayne, Metal Hammer reports. The track is the lead single from the band's upcoming album "Stampede of the Disco Elephants," which is out later this year. The record was produced by long time Bizkit collaborator Ross Robinson and is released on Lil Wayne's Cash Money label.
Now, the band's putting the finishing touches on its new studio album. "We're really trying to get it hammered out here," Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland told Billboard in May. "We're done with most of the music, pretty much all the music. The lyrics and vocals are probably 30 percent done, and [Fred Durst] is working as we speak, on tour."
Regarding the musical direction of Bizkit's new CD, Borland said that the songs on "Stampede Of The Disco Elephants" have a "very live and sort of wild" feel. Moreover, fans shouldn't expect the same old Limp Bizkit on the album; instead, there will be quite a bit of experimentation on the effort. "I think it's a little bit more, sort of playful, taking chances, a little less pop, structured type of stuff," Borland said. "I don't want to say it [sounds] younger, but maybe a little more carefree, musically, to where we don't over-think what we're doing."
In an interview earlier this month, Durst noted that the band's "we don't give a f--k" attitude my have affected their public image in the past:
"We were the black sheep or the white sheep, Not quite hip hop but not quite metal. But we didn't give a f--k, and we always tried to say that fairly blatantly. That was one of the things that came dislikable about us."
