DJ wants to make LP inspired by 'The Wall'

Deadmau5 planning Pink Floyd-inspired concept album
Deadmau5 has revealed that he wants his next record to be a concept album similar to Pink Floyd's classic LP 'The Wall'.

Speaking to MTV, the DJ, who released his sixth studio album '> album title goes here <' this week, said that he is eager to take a year off from touring so he can focus on putting together a more focused record.

The producer, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, said: "'>Album Title Goes Here<'is like a poster book of my year and the work I got done in the chaos kind of thing," before adding:

Hopefully next time - and I know I say this every f***ing time - that I'll have this year off of touring and put together something that's like Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'.

Speaking about '> album title goes here <' , he added: 'It wasn't one of those albums where I did 'A, B, C, this is the way the album is going to go' with the tracks, because I had a big fucking tour year.

"I would get home for a couple of weeks, and I would do one song, then people saw that, I streamed it live and then I thought, 'Okay, I'll put it on the album."

'> album title goes here <' is the follow-up to 2010's '4x4=12', with the album's single 'Professional Griefers' featuring a collaboration with My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way. Click below to watch the video.

The tracklisting for '> album title goes here <' is as follows:
