His albums often feature dozens of collaborators, like   Sting, The Backstreet Boys, and Zooey Deschanel, who appear on the latest record, Neon Future IV. Today, Steve shares how he gets such mega-stars to let their guard down in the studio. And we’ll also hear about his interests in futurism and technology, and why Elon Musk is his dream collaborator. That's coming up, on the next World Cafe with host Stephen Kallao.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
