Everyone’s been questioning when Skrillex is placing out his subsequent album. Turns out, it was one other case of the Mandela impact at work. Speaking to Billboard concerning the launch of the music video for his new tune with Hikaru Utada for Kingdom Hearts three, Skrillex clarified that the rumors about an album had been simply that… rumors.
It undoubtedly doesn’t assist that one of many greatest proponents of the rumor was previous Jack Ü member Diplo himself. He acknowledged in a 2018 interview, level clean: “Skrillex is working on a new album.” Guess not.
Fans are clearly longing for Skrillex information. What are you presently engaged on?
You know, folks have been asking me about when I’ve a brand new album popping out, and it’s a bit unusual, as a result of I by no means mentioned I used to be making an album. [Laughs] Over the final couple of years, I’ve been making an attempt to step away a bit bit. I wished to take a while to organize for my future and life as an grownup, to determine how I wish to method my profession. I simply wanna be human for a bit bit. I’ll launch some new music quickly, however I’m simply making an attempt to do it organically. At the identical time, I nonetheless like to make music, and I’m clearly working. I’m really doing a residency in Las Vegas this spring and beginning to do extra reveals, however I’m going with the move and making an attempt be in a single place for some time. That’s my aim for the second.
So tl;dr — we’re getting some new Skrillex quickly, but it surely’s not going to be an album, and who even is aware of when that is perhaps. I assume that places a wrench in our 2019 albums to sit up for piece, however at this level, we’re pleased with any little Skrillex morsel we get.
