Madeon confirms sophomore studio album in the works
Last year, Hugo Leclercq, better known as French producer Madeon, released his long-anticipated debut LP, Adventure. Spanning 12 tracks (18 counting the deluxe release), Madeon’s introductory record cemented his status as one of the brightest forward-thinkers in electronic music today. And where most young producers are building their brands behind relentless release schedules and a constant social media presence, Leclercq’s output typically arrives as just a few quality offerings a year (and some drunk DMs to deadmau5). Recently though, Madeon took to Twitter to answer a fan’s question with the exciting confirmation of a new record underway.
Confirming plans to follow up on his Billboard chart-topping debut, Madeon is aiming to have his sophomore effort completed sometime next year, though no official details came with the confirmation. Adventure found Madeon transitioning from studio wunderkind to high-profile pop producer, and next year’s follow-up record will likely show even bolder strides in Leclercq’s budding career.
