Four years ago, Gesaffelstein released his sophomore album, Hyperion. Compared to his innovative debut album, Aleph, it mostly fell on deaf ears without earning nearly the same degree of notoriety. Though the accompanying tour was successful, if only for nostalgia if nothing else, Hyperion‘s streams are middling — apart from the collaboration with The Weeknd.
There hasn’t really been any rumors surrounding Gesaffelstein this year, at least as far as the general culture has been concerned, so color us all surprised when Skrillex today randomly posted with him and revealed that not only does Gesa have a new album coming, it’s apparently already finished and he’s listened to it. His thoughts were simply, “my gaaawd.”
We can’t wait to hear what this visionary has in store for us this year.
