In a bit of disappointing news for dance music fans, it appears that Skrillex will NOT be releasing a new album in 2019. For the past year, rumors have been swirling over the OWSLA label head’s next project, with even Diplo chiming in that Sonny had a new LP in the works. Well, in a recent interview with Billboard Skrill put all the rumors to rest:
You know, people have been asking me about when I have a new album coming out, and it’s a little strange, because I never said I was making an album. [Laughs] Over the last couple of years, I’ve been trying to step away a little bit. I wanted to take some time to prepare for my future and life as an adult, to figure out how I want to approach my career. I just wanna be human for a little bit. I’ll release some new music soon, but I’m just trying to do it organically. At the same time, I still love to make music, and I’m obviously working. I’m actually doing a residency in Las Vegas this spring and starting to do more shows, but I’m going with the flow and trying be in one place for a while. That’s my goal for the moment.
While any new music from Skrillex is exciting, it’s definitely disappointing that he won’t be delivering an album this year. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
