2019 was supposed to be the year we were finally gifted with a new Skrillex album. Fans, artists, and even Skrillex himself seemed to hint at this being a foregone conclusion. But in a recent interview with Billboard, the producer seemed to take a different stance on a new album coming out soon.
Speaking to Billboard about his new song with Hikaru Utada for Kingdom Hearts 3, Skrillex was asked the question “What are you currently working on,” and his answer seemed to signify that an album is not likely anytime soon.
“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 to be in one place for a while. That’s my goal for the moment.”
While it sounds like we could be getting some brand new Skrillex collabs, remixes, or even singles, we wouldn’t hold our breath for an entire feature album in 2019.
