Everyone is really hyped about when Skrillex is putting out his next album. Speaking to Billboard about the release of the music video for his new song with Hikaru Utada for Kingdom Hearts 3, Skrillex clarified that the rumors about an album were just that… rumors. He never worked on an album, and the rumour is base less.
It definitely doesn’t help that one of the biggest proponents of the rumor was past Jack Ü member Diplo himself. He stated in a 2018 interview, point blank: “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.”
In the interview with Billboard, when Skrillex was asked more about his music and the rumors of working on the album, he answered:
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
tryingbe in one place for a while. That’s my goal for the moment.
