Anyone who watches deadmau5's Twitter knows the electronic producer and sound engineering mastermind has been cookin' up a new LP. Fans drooled over a tweet that it was nearly finished in July, and today, it's announced W:/2016ALBUM/ can be expected to hit fans' ears Friday, Dec. 2.

The release promises unheard originals alongside recent musings the web-loving producer has worked on publicly via Twitch livestreamed sessions. W:/2016ALBUM/ will be the Grammy-nominated producer's eighth album, and though it's still a month out, he's already thinking about the next one.
