Gesaffelstein has unveiled details of his third studio album, ‘GAMMA’, due to land next month via Sony Music.

It marks the French producer’s first record in more than five years following 2019’s ‘Hyperion’, which went on to reach number 10 in the US dance charts.

The record lands on March 29 featuring 11 brand new tracks, harking back to the producer’s “raw industrial sound” with a surrealist approach to hard dance music.

A two-minute trailer for the new record directed by Post Malone and FKA Twigs collaborator Jordan Hemingway is out now. Watch it below.

Last year, Skrillex shared several photos on Instagram alongside Gesaffelstein, aka Mike Lévy, in France. One of the pictures showed a snippet of Gesaffelstein’s laptop with production software open.

Skrillex later tweeted: “Gesaffelstein’s just played us his new album my gaaawd”. It was the first teaser for the new album and led to speculation of a collaboration between the pair.

Last month, Coachella revealed that Gesaffelstein will return to the stage for the first time since 2019 at its next edition this coming April. His last performance at the LA festival has also been released in full following the announcement.
