Deadmau5Deadmau5 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.

">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]," he told MTV.

LMFAOLMFAO have split up. The duo - made up of Redfoo and Sky Blu - have decided to break up after drifting apart and going in different directions.

"I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds, but we're always family. He'll always be my nephew, I'll always be his uncle. I feel like we've been doing this for so long, five or six years. And we're kind of like saying, well, let's just do what's natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time," Redfoo said.

Redfoo will now be focusing on his solo material but insists it will still have a LMFAO-feel to it. "All the music that I'm going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish... I love all the topics that we talk about. I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music," Redfoo added.

Tony Kanal, the band's bassist, added, "Honestly ... we just make music that we love and we want to play. We get inspired by something, and we kind of go with it."
