Skrillex drops new album exclusively through mobile game

Skrillex's first full-length album has been released. However, the only way to listen to it right now is by playing a mediocre mobile game.

Alien Ride is a new Android & iOS shooter from Motim Technologies. The free app is a fairly simple shooter which uses the gyroscope for movement. You can press down on the screen to fire and collect various health and weapon power-ups while shooting down asteroids.

What would otherwise be a completely forgettable shooter has been enhanced with 11 new tracks from the Dubstep artist. Playing will let you stream the tracks, and you'll be able to find a link to pre-order the full album, which will be available on March 18th.

You can download the game for free off of Google Play and the App Store (via The Verge).
