Deadmau5 is back after two years with a new album, W:/2016ALBUM/. So how exactly do you pronounce the jumbled title? Simple enough: “W drive 2016 album.”

The album marks Deadmau5’s eighth, but his first under his new label Mau5trap. W:/2016ALBUM/ will consist of new tracks as well as work he has shared on the web via his Twitch livestreamed sessions.
And it sounds like he won’t be slowing down after sharing his latest project. Deadmau5 tweeted early Friday morning (Nov. 4) about the possibility of recording and releasing more new music soon. Responding to a fan who appreciates more relaxed music rather than seizure-inducing lightshow tracks, Deadmau5 tweeted, “I’m actually considering writing a new album this next 2 months off of just that… i think i already have a title in mind.”
W:/2016ALBUM/ comes out December 2nd.
