Former Swedish House Mafia members Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso made it Facebook official on Thursday (May 29): A joint album is in the works. The producing duo have a long history together, but this will be their first-ever album release.
They both took to Twitter to announce the news after Zane Lowe opened his radio show teasing their new track, “This Time We Can’t Go Home.”
“So like Zane said, me and @axwell are finishing our first album together and he played a small clip tonight. This time we cant go home,” Ingrosso wrote, while Axwell said he was “looking forward to this new journey!”
The now-duo, working under the simple title ‘Axwell Λ Ingrosso,’ has given away We Come, We Rave, We Love on SoundCloud. As Radio 1′s Zane Lowe puts it, they’re “clearing out the back catalogue to get ready for new music.” The radio host is waxing lyrical about what the Swedes have coming for us. “I was lucky enough to go down to their studio the other day and listen to a whole bunch of songs,” he told Radio 1 listeners. “Some finished, some almost there. The album is going to be incredible.”
Over the Northern summer, Axwell Λ Ingrosso will be getting into form with shows around the US at the New York Governors Ball, LIGHT in Vegas and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas (we talk about it here), as well as their Ibiza residency Departures at open-air superclub Ushuaïa.
The guys also launched their joint Facebook page, and it already has 2.3 million likes!
