Many agree it’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance. So when KSHMR tweets that “[his] debut album is one of the most ambitious, maybe even one of the best electronic albums of all time,” the Internet fires back. But one thing is certain: KSHMR’s enthusiasm to share two years of hard work with the world this Friday January 15.
My debut album is one of the most ambitious, maybe even one of the best electronic albums of all time…— KSHМR (@KSHMRmusic) January 8, 2021
I know it sounds crazy but I just can’t imagine anybody else taking you on a journey quite like this, or even trying

To wrap things up, KSHMR puts an end to the Twitter wars with a my-kid-is-the-best parent analogy. Whatever your take is, with just four days to the album’s release, we’ll let you decide for yourselves once the album drops!
Guys I’m very excited about this album, the internet hit me w a deserved humble stick so I’ll just say:— KSHМR (@KSHMRmusic) January 8, 2021
I think it’s best music I’ve made, maybe the best I can make. It took 2 yrs + now I’m that annoying parent who wants to tell everyone how great their kid is, I’ll calm down
