After an emotional rollercoaster spurred by the passing of a dedicated fan named James Lillo who died from terminal cancer, Eric Prydz closed out his 2016 by hosting a show in honour of Lillo and also released a song named after him.
Despite a somber end to his year, Prydz is taking advantage of the new year and looking ahead with a teaser of an exciting announcement coming up in 2017.
According to a tweet, Prydz has prepped and is readying to release a Pryda album sometime in the new year. Pryda represents the more dance-focused tracks, unlike his Cirez D moniker which embody his techno influences.
His most recent Pryda release arrived in November in the form of his 'Pryda 037' EP. No further dates or details have been revealed for his 2017 release thus far.
