It’s not quite the same thing as pulling a Beyoncé, but a little more than a week ago, nobody even knew that the divisive dubstep moppet Skrillex was working on an album, and now that album, entitled Recess, is set to come out next week. The album is actually Skrillex’s full-length debut; to this date, he’s made his name on EPs and remixes and his face-melting DJ sets. The LP features collaborations from people like Chance The Rapper, Diplo, Niki & The Dove, Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos, and K-Pop stars G-Dragon and CL. The album is streaming right now on Skrillex’s free Alien Ride app. (It’s supposed to be on iTunes Radio now, too, but that doesn’t appear to be working at the moment.)
Recess is out 3/18 on OWSLA.
