It's been the better part of a year since Skrillex confirmed that he had a longer body of work coming out after his and Boys Noize's EP as Dog Blood, Turn Off The Lights. In an interview with Beats 1, the Los Angeles DJ/producer has spoken about the album more openly than ever before.

Specifically, Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) addressed his relative radio silence a couple years ago, explaining that it was necessary to finding his voice in the as-yet-unnamed release. He told the hosts:

"The thing is with this album, every single piece of music or body of work I've put together in my life, I've always taken what I had then and there, and then it was run and gun. With this one it's the first time I've really been taking my time and been a little bit precious about a couple of these releases - but soon, man. I've been making some videos right now and making some content for some of the next records ... I've never sat down and been completely tenacious about one of my releases."
