Italy's Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, aka the Bloody Beetroots, has been behind some of the most riotous, thumping electro-house on the scene since debuting in 2006. His second studio album, HIDE, will be released in a few weeks on Ultra, but now you can take an exclusive first listen to the record, which kicks off with the glitchy blips of "Spank" that build to the obvious but necessary question: "Do you wanna dance?" A blitz of synths ensue and the Beetroots' mastermind hardly seems concerned with keeping the volume down for the rest of the record.

Look Back on the Best of Paul McCartney's Solo Years

HIDE features a wide array of guest spots, too, including Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee – who shows up for the stadium-sized "Raw" – and Theophilus London, who spits on "All the Girls (Around the World)." Peter Frampton even shows up to lend his famous talkbox vocals to "The Beat" and Sir Paul McCartney himself breaks out some trademark wails on the thundering dance ballad "Out of Sight."

HIDE will be released on September 17th, and you can pre-order the LP over at iTunes.
