The new Deadmau5 album release is set for June 17th in digital copy and June 24th in both physical and streaming copies. The new album, while(1<2), will consist of 25 tracks and will be Deadmu5 first ever double-disc set.
In an interview, Deadmau5 described exactly how the new album came together. “It was when I was working on some live stuff, setlists 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,” said Deadmou5. Many of the music selections from the new album have been featured on Deadmau5’s soundcloud page.
