deadmau5 (aka Joel Thomas Zimmerman) has no trouble courting controversy — like his dissing the art of DJing in 2008 or ongoing feud with Madonna — but he also courts collaborators with equal ease. From releasing singles with Kaskade to remixing tracks by the Foo Fighters, deadmau5 is adept at bringing his own flavor to a variety of genres, and looking at the tracklist for his latest effort, > album title goes here <, out September 27th via Ultra Music, it seems fans can expect more of the unexpected from the Canadian producer.
The first single from the album, “Professional Griefers,” will be available for purchase this Tuesday and features My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way. Fan can look forward to an accompanying video for the track, created by Dave Stewart’s Weapons of Mass Entertainment production company and featuring both deadmau5 and Way, later this month. Other collaborators on the album include quirky multi-instrumentalist Imogen Heap and Cuban-American/Latino hip hop group Cypress Hill, who will no doubt bring their own vibes to the album.
