Skrillex Says the First of Multiple Albums is Almost Finished

On his Instagram, Skrillex teased that multiple follow-ups to 2014's Recess are on the way.

It's been six years since the release of Skrillex's debut album, Recess. Since then, fans have been desperately waiting for the pioneering producer's next body of work. Thankfully, he's come along to update us during a time of unease and isolation by confirming that the "first" album is almost finished. 

On his Instagram, Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) shared a note stating that the album is in the final mixing stages. He also seemingly confirmed the longstanding rumors that he had multiple albums in the works by calling it "this first album..."
