Following a successful Ibiza summer residency, Spanish producer and DJ Eric Estornel, aka Maceo Plex, announced today that a new album is on the way.

The new full-length, titled Journey to Solar, is due out on November 18 on his Ellum label. It follows his 2011 debut Life Index, and will serve as a prequel of sorts to another forthcoming album, Solar, scheduled for Spring 2017.

According to Estornel's Facebook, both of the albums were written during the same period, and Journey to Solar is described as being "the tracks that didn't make the album." As Resident Advisor notes, it will consist of more club-friendly material compared to Solar's "mostly broken beat electro/electronica."

Listen to samples of Journey to Solar below ahead of its November 18 release.
