Deadmau5 Composing New Anthem for Toronto Maple Leaf’s 100th Birthday

When have you ever heard that a Dj will be creating a new anthem for a sports team? Deadmau5 will be the first to do this for one of his favorite sports team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, in celebration of their 100th birthday. Deadmau5 gladly accepted the offer to create the new anthem when the hockey team was in search for an artist to refurbish their current one.

According to Deadmau5:
“I got an e-mail from management asking if I would consider doing it and I was like heck yeah. I knew I had to do something that was palatable and worked for the crowd and also lend itself to some audience participation. These thoughts all formed in my head before I even sat down.”

The Toronto Maple Leafs are currently opening a new chapter in the sport. After a century of playing hockey, they wanted the very best to kick start the new season. The unveiling of the anthem is scheduled to be released at the Leaf's Centennial Celebrations being held today.

Deadmau5 gave a statement about the new tune stating:
“I didn’t want to just license out an existing track. It was better to do something different but still retaining some qualities that I possess with my own music. I wanted to keep it in the vein of something driving and anthem-ish.”

Hold my beer, watch this!
