Hot on the heels of the news that Canadian studio whiz Deadmau5 has September 2012 locked in for his new album, the full details of the release have been announced. With the very Deadmau5 title > album title goes here <, the 13-track collection is out 21 September in Australia through Mau5trap/Parlophone. 14 August sees the release of the Gerard Way-featuring single, Professional Griefers. The album includes a collaboration with Wolfgang Gartner on Channel 42, following their team-up on Animal Rights in 2010, plus appearances by Cypress Hill, Imogen Heap and Chris James. The tracks on > album title goes here < are the result of an intensive stint in the studio that the producer slotted in around his touring commitments.
What sets Deadmau5 apart from many of his contemporaries is his Soundcloud-uploading habit, with several of these album tracks like There might be coffee and Fn Pig going online as works in progress. The album will feature those tracks in their complete, mastered form. In an interview with Q Uncut last month, Deadmau5 touched on that close connection with his fans. “I come from a low-income family,” he said. “And now all of a sudden I’m worth millions and I feel I have to justify that, always. I would hate to think that someone out there would believe I’m making millions of dollars and just going out bottle-popping and flying on jets. Literally, money in, money out is my big thing right now. I would feel bad about hording all of that, having this mountain-top estate that no-one has access to. So I feel my work is owed back to those people.” The confirmation of > album title goes here < closely follows Deadmau5’s announcement that he’s set to “unplug for a wee bit and chill the fuck out”.
