Steve Angello confirms sophomore album is the works
The first full length production from Steve Angello since the disbandment of what is arguably the most influential electronic act of the millennial boom, Swedish House Mafia, Angello’s foray into the album circuit has been marked with its fair share of drama, seemingly perpetual delays, and a healthy dose of hype.
Wild Youth was as nostalgic for his past as it was optimistic for his future. It was a more matured take on the sound and style that he helped pioneer, all bookended with a sense of youthful rebellion that his tattoo’d sleeves and backward caps have represented since the words “Swedish House Mafia” were just a phrase used in jest between himself and a few friends.
And now here we are, facing the optmistic future and rounding off a 2016 which deserves a spot in the history books of electronic dance music. After much aspiration from his fans, Steve Angello has now announced that his sophomore album is in the works and set for release in 2017 . His most recent track, “Follow Me” alongside Still Young, was an emotional journey of a record with inspiration coming from numerous genres such as groove and progressive house. And if his latest efforts serve as any indication of what’s to come, fans can expect a classic Steve Angello sound with poignant finish, which injects the warm and soulful touch of one of the industry’s most outstanding and talented producers of our time.
You name it, Angello’s 2017 is already now set to be another manificent year, but there is more. After it’s last installment back in 2014, Steve confirmed that his “Size In The Park” show will return in the upcoming year. The previous year’s sold-out shows featured support from Size acts like DJ duo Third Party, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and Max Vangeli and AN21. While supporting DJs for this year’s shows have yet to be announced, it can be expected that Angello will allow himself to bring an even wider array of artists to the stage.
