It’s been a long time since we’ve heard about any new projects from Skrillex. His last EP, Leaving, released about half a decade ago, and four years since his debut studio album, Recess.
However, now it looks like the producer is returning with anew surprise after splitting from Jack U. In a recent interview with Argentine newspaper La Nacion, Diplo revealed that Skrillex is working on a new album.
“Skrillex is working on a new album. I think that after that and the new album that we are preparing with Major Lazer, we will make music together again,” said Diplo.
Not only can fans expect some new music in 2018, but it also sounds like Diplo and Skrillex are planning to revive Jack U.
Rob Swire electrified Pendulum fans and lit up Twitter yesterday with the surprise announcement that he was mulling over the decision to make a new Pendulum album. Pendulum’s last album was Immersion in 2010 so it’s been a long time since the world has been able to press play on new music from the group.
In June of this year, Pendulum came together to play a full live set after almost six years. This is quite the turn around from the attitude displayed in an AMA Reddit thread two years ago where Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen sat down to chat with fans. It was revealed that Rob’s heart was not in the Pendulum project, that he didn’t want to make more drum and bass or fuse it with rock, and didn’t want to travel with a live band. He said it would sound different. Time will tell if Rob Swire and company will head into the studio. Whatever the outcome, there will be fans eagerly waiting.
