deadmau5 wants to write a concept album like Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'.
The dance musician has just released his sixth album, '>Album Title Goes Here<', made during a hectic period of DJ performances around the world, but he's hoping to take a year off and create something completely different, with a concept, like British psychedelic band's 1979 classic.
He told MTV: "'>Album Title Goes Here<' is like a poster book of my year and the work I got done in the chaos kind of thing. "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'.
"Something that tells a story and has a big package thing [around it]."
The 'Professional Griefers' musician also explained how he judged whether tracks were good enough for '>Album Title Goes Here<', by getting reaction to them from fans via the internet.
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 f***ing 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 [if it was positive] I thought, 'Okay, I'll put it on the album.'"
