Nearly two weeks ago, Alan Walker joined an exclusive club in the music industry after reaching over 1 billion YouTube views for his international hit, ‘Faded.’ The collaboration with vocalist Iselin Solheim put Walker among the ranks with artists such as Calvin Harris, The Chainsmokers and Avicii who have also reached this milestone.
His last single, ‘Alone‘ was another chart topping smash but was released back in December so fans have been eager to hear what the Norwegian superstar has been cooking up.
“Ignite” is Walker’s first release of 2017 and is in collaboration with producer and songwriter Kenneth Nilsen, or K-391. Featuring his signature sound and radio-friendly energy, ‘Ignite’ is destined to become another bulls-eye on the charts. While there is only an instrumental mix available for us to listen to, the vocal version along with a music video are expected to be dropping within the coming days in promotion with Sony’s new Android device, the Sony Xperia XZs.
Sony talked about the collaboration in a recent interview.
“The collaboration with Alan Walker feels like a perfect match. The new Xperia XZs and its utterly distinctive super slow motion function is fully in line with Alan Walker’s trademark and sound. Inspired by Alan expression and audience, we have chosen to build a campaign around prevailing gaming culture.”
For now you can enjoy the instrumental through Spotify and be on the lookout for the vocal mix and music video.
