It’s no secret that deadmau5 is passionate about fast cars (despite his questionable aesthetic choices), and indeed, the sprawling, nine-minute Phantoms Can’t Hang feels readymade for night driving under city lights.

While(1<2) is out digitally on June 17, with a physical release to follow June 24 via mau5trap. Pre-ordering today will land you an immediate download of all four tracks that have surfaced so far. Upset that you still have to wait a week for the whole album? Perhaps our deadmau5-inspired motivational posters will give you the strength to carry on.
