Skrillex - Skrillex Releases New Album Via Smartphone App

Electronic dance music superstar Skrillex has followed Beyonce and Kid Cudi's example by shock-releasing his new album via his smartphone app.

Ellie Goulding's former boyfriend released the tracks from his new album Recess one after the other on Monday evening (10Mar14), and the tunes are now streaming in full for fans who downloaded his Alien Ride app. Samples of the album are also available on iTunes.

The album will go on full release from 18 March (14).

Recess features an eclectic mix of collaborators, including Diplo, Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos and K-Pop star G-Dragon. It also features his new composition for the Divergent soundtrack, Stranger.

Until Monday night, no one knew that Skrillex, real name Sonny Moore, had completed work on a new album.
