As music lovers, we can't help but speculate anytime a major artist does something that even remotely hints at the possibility of new music. The fandoms are quick to pounce when they notice a new artist-to-artist social media follow, or a tweet from a leading producer is released. Something that especially makes the metaphorical ears perk is when someone wipes their Instagram clean, seemingly making way for some big news to come.  

Skrillex has done just that, erasing all but two posts on his Instagram page. The two posts left behind are one from 2019 where he's filmed at a festival killing his mixer and one displaying his recent Black Lives Matter-inspired track with Ty Dolla $ign, Ant Clemons, Virtual Riot, and Nia Miranda. This immediately caught fans' attention, sparking rumors that new music could be on the way. While we can't be sure the extent of what is to come, it's safe to assume some big news is coming.

It's been six years since the release of his debut album Recess.
