Afrojack talks new album: ‘I wanted to do something that I’ve never done before’
Dutch producer Afrojack has opened up about his new album ‘Forget The World,’ revealing that he thinks some people “aren’t going to understand” it.
Talking to Mixmag backstage at Dstrkt in Soho, the ‘Ten Feet Tall’ producer confessed he’s taken a new approach to the forthcoming LP, experimenting with ‘various shades of EDM,’ according to the music website.
"Some people aren't going to understand my new album. They’re going to ask, 'Where is the drop? I want to fist pump.' You can fist pump at the festivals because I will make special edits," he said. "But for the album, I wanted to do something that I have never done before and that no one else has really tried. Everyone else has done their own kind of EDM album but I wanted to try a couple of things to make it more of a personal experience."
The record kicks off with Afrojack’s latest release ‘Ten Feet Tall,’ which features Wrabel, and closes with his Shirazi collab ‘Mexico’ – which the producer – real name Nick van de Wall – describes as the “craziest” thing he’s ever done.
‘Forget The World’ drops worldwide tomorrow.
