deadmau5 continues to build excitement for his newest artist album While (1<2) having already given out a preview of the first single "Avaritia" with a brand new track showcasing a different style we are used to hearing from him. "Seeya" is a gritty track in a soulful new direction with vocals from LA band The Material's singer Colleen D'Agostino. It sounds like something you may not expect from the mau5, and proves to the critics how diverse this new album really might be. We receive a small sample to tide us over, yet we expect to hear quite a bit more in the coming days and weeks leading to the highly anticipated release. It closes out with a sample of his interview primarily talking about his Ferrari, and briefly about the new album. Enjoy!
