Lido announces new album is complete, says he will perform it in full at Coachella
Recently, we were unexpectedly handed The Life Of Peder, which found Lido trying on his Yeezy Boosts for a nine-track remix effort of Kanye West’s most recent LP. Then, in a quick follow-up, Lido made his video directorial debut for a new single, “Crazy,” that seemingly came out of nowhere. Both new offerings from Lido, however, pointed to something much bigger up the Norwegian producer’s sleeve. Now we have official confirmation that Lido’s new album is complete and ready to be heard, and much sooner than anyone thought — by this weekend.
Taking to Instagram to share the news, Lido announced,”I’m gonna get in so much trouble for this, but fuck it. My album is done and I’m playing the whole thing at Coachella. See you Friday.” Though the record is still nameless and an official release date has yet to be delivered, the whole project is finished and polished just in time for two of Lido’s biggest appearances of the year. Already a respected producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and DJ, a full-length studio project from Lido was inevitable, and with two major crowd tests at Coachella coming up, an official release is certainly soon to follow.
