Former Swedish House Mafia members Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso are officially releasing their debut album as the newest members of the Def Jam family, the record label announced Friday (September 19).
“We are proud at Def Jam to have Axwell / Ingrosso choose us to be their label home. Their music is forward, innovative, invigorating and boundless,” Steve Bartels (CEO of Def Jam Recordings) said. “Def Jam has the artistry and energy of DJ culture within its pedigree, right there in our logo. This is a significant moment for all of us as at Def Jam.”
Despite their many successes as SHM, the supergroup never released an official album, so this 2015 release is a significant one for the DJ/producing duo. Fans have had a taste of what Axwell and Ingrosso can do together from their joint residency in Ibiza and the snippet of their premiere single "This Time We Can't Go Home," and the demand for more is higher than ever. With Def Jam on their side, their debut album is already off to a running start.
Congrats to Def Jam and to Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso. While the guys are hard at work on an international tour, keep an eye out for any other music drops in 2014, and hold yourself over in the meantime with "This Time We Can't Go Home."
