Red Bull has brought back its “20 Before 16.” This is the second year Red Bull Music Academy will present 20 tracks by emerging artists to help ring in the new year.
Last year there were definitely surprises, like D’Angelo’s first music in 14 years, and exclusive Earl Sweatshirt music.
The 20 songs are released over 20 days, and the tracks are available as free downloads, 1,000 copies only.
The latest single is Chilean quartet Astro’s “Le Golden Ballon,” recorded live at Red Bull’s LA studio. The song was originally on the band’s 2009 debut EP, “Le Disc De Astrou.”
Download “Le Golden Ballon” here; as of Dec. 6, there were 579 downloads left.
Each song begins streaming at noon EST each day at redbull.com. You can listen to previous 20 Before 16 tracks there as well.
