Hours after sending out the Twitter message, Deadmau5 posted a demo version of the song with a brief message: “The first rough draft of ‘Satellite.’ Still lots of work to do, but here’s the intro + 1st verse for you.”
There has been scant information regarding Von D’s foray into music since announcing that she was recording tracks back in late 2011.
Earlier this year, Von D teamed up with guitarist Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle) to record “LUVnSTUFF,” a remake of 2009 Deadmau5 hit “Ghosts N Stuff” that features the tattoo artist on vocals. The song was her Valentine’s Day gift to the Canadian producer.
