The first real sneak peek we have had since his cryptic tweet, deadmau5 put up a video on his Facebook page of a full orchestra playing his music. Oddly enough not an offshoot from his ‘Strobe’ orchestral remix played recently, this is a whole new project. Whether we will be getting classic deadmau5 tunes remastered for an orchestra, or if he will be creating all-new tunes in conjunction with the orchestra remains to be heard.
Deadmau5 has consistently been pumping out albums of new material, and in 2017 he released Stuff I used to do, a compilation of his early work. When asked if a new album was in the works this past September, he responded “She’s a comin’”. The next indicator if what is to come happened in January, he tweeted about the most epic thing he has ever done with his music, when asked for a clue said”sure, maybe one… an actual 60 piece orchestra.”
“There’s nothing better in my world than being able to sit in during a few recording passes of this. Unreal” is the next clue, in the title of the video on Facebook. Fans commenting think it is a take on his track ‘Invidia’. There’s no telling an exact date but we do know Zimmerman is hoping to have this album out by spring. Until then, content yourself with the orchestral ‘Strobe’ remix here, and the hint of things to come below!
