Deadmau5 Announces Release Date For New Double-Album

The new Deadmau5 album has a release date and a title, but good luck pronouncing it.

After declaring on Twitter last month that the upcoming release would be “the first album I’ve ever done that i would even call an album… it’s put together like an album, not a compilation,” the Canadian EDM star has officially revealed a June 17 digital drop date for while(1<2), with the physical and streaming versions due a week later on June 24.

Fans eager to get an idea of what to expect from the album can listen to a quick 30-second preview of the opening track “Avaritia” below. The full-length version of the tune will debut on Pete Tong’s UK BBC Radio 1 show this Friday, June 16. For those unable to wait that long, pre-ordering the album from the Deadmau5 Live website and new mobile app will unlock the complete track.

“It’s a good mix of sh-t I want to do versus sh-t people want to hear or what they would expect,” the producer said in a press release. “It’s a good balance. It’s not like, ‘Oh, it’s such a departure. He’s doing smooth jazz.’ It was when I was working on some live stuff, set lists for shows and stuff like that, and it just must have been a couple of tracks that sounded pretty good stitched together end to start and I thought, ‘Well, if I ever do an album or compile this into some kind of album this has got to be that part of the order for that.’ And I just kind of took everything and played musical Tetris with it.”
