Swedish House Mafia have dropped the final bread crumb on the trail to their long-awaited debut album, Paradise Again.
The album has been a long time coming for Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello of the legendary supergroup, whose disbandment a decade ago shook the dance music community to its core. Prior to 2021’s comeback single “It Gets Better,” Swedish House Mafia hadn’t released any new music since 2012’s Until Now compilation, which spawned generational dance anthems like “Save the World” and “Don’t You Worry Child.”
According to a press release issued to announce the music video for their recent collaboration with Sting, “Redlight,” Paradise Again will officially drop on April 15th, 2022 via Republic Records. The album’s release aligns with Swedish House Mafia’s momentous performance at Coachella.
“When you listen to this album, listen from start to finish,” Ingrosso told SPIN. “I don’t care if it has 50 streams. I don’t give a fuck. We just feel like we still have something to say, and that’s why we’re saying it.”
“Redlight” follows Paradise Again singles “It Gets Better” and “Lifetime” (with Ty Dolla $ign and 070 Shake). The group also recently collaborated with The Weeknd on “Moth To A Flame” before contributing production to two additional cuts from the pop aesthete’s chart-topping 5th studio album, Dawn FM.
