Since this could easily be the biggest news of the year, we’re not going to beat around the bush and just give you the scoop right away: Axwell just premiered his newest single called ‘Waiting For So Long’ on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1. After the track begins to fade away, the radio rip breaks into an interview between Zane and the Swedish maestro, in which he hints that the famed Swedish House Mafia would come together as a trio, after 3 long years, to work on a new project. Here are Axwell’s exact words:
We think about it every now and then, you know what we left, what we did, what we’ve 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 here, 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 to Swedish House Mafia it up again… who knows!
While he leaves us wanting a much more definitive answer, we can appreciate that they are at least open to the idea, and can only dream that one day, just maybe, the legendary trio will rise again.
