Axwell speaks about a possible return for Swedish House Mafia in Beats 1 interview
In addition to premiering his latest single, “Waiting For So Long (Gloria)” during his appearance on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio Show, Axwell decided it was a good time to tug at the heartstrings of countless Swedish House Mafia fans by fanning the flames of another rumor. After the premiere, Zane and Ax have a chat and the now defunct trio emerges as a topic of discussion as it so often does. It’s been 3 years since their final performance at Ultra Music Festival and fans are eager to know if the often speculated reunion would ever happen. The question isn’t anything new for Axwell, Ingrosso, or Angello, but this time the answer is far from a definitive “No.”
We think about it every now and then, you know what we left, what we did, what we accomplished and everything, and how it would be to do something together again. But I think, the only thing is that time will tell pretty much. We have been blessed to be riding this wave, and just ahead of the wave for some time now, so you know we are able to do exactly what we want, which is a blessing. You know this song that we just played, it was just like no thoughts, no need, no nothing, just music. Who knows what happens in the future, we might get a sudden urge for Swedish House Mafia again… who knows!
While there isn’t much to confirm or deny the possibility of an SHM reunion, there’s no doubt that the tour would be another global phenomena — and you’ve got to imagine that the boys know that better than anyone else.
‘Waiting For So Long’ will be released on Decemebr 11th as part of the Axtone Ten Box Set.
