And Finally Artist News Releases

Deadmau5 not a Deadmau5 fan

Deadmau5’s new album ‘W:/2016ALBUM/’ is a “fucking rushed” and “slapped together” cash grab. So says Deadmau5, anyway. You may or may not want to cancel your pre-orders.

Tweeting about the album, which is due out on 2 Dec, the producer wrote: “I don’t even like it. It was like, so fucking rushed [and] slapped together. But I mean, hey, if you like it I wanna like it too, [I] just don’t”.

Asked why he’d put out something he didn’t think was up to scratch, he replied: “Cos I got mad fuckin bills”.

He conceded that he was “happy” with two tracks on the album – ‘Snocone’ and ‘Whelk Then’ – as well as suggesting that he’s been largely displeased with all of his recorded output to date, so this album may not be any different from the rest.

“This is seriously a love/hate thing happening here”, he wrote. “But, a thing, nonetheless. And it’s good to be doing things. Maybe it’s time to just sit down, and work on this fabled ‘album I like’ thing I’ve been wanting to do for the past ten years”.

He could do that, though why break a winning formula?
