It has been a long-awaited two years, but the time has finally come. The much demanded 2019 version of “It Gets Better,” which Swedish House Mafia played during their run of comeback shows, has finally been released.

The release comes straight from the Swedes themselves as Axwell responded to a comment from a fan on his latest Instagram post asking the trio to put out the version of the song. Axwell replied with what was a Dropbox link to the complete extended version of the track.

Deemed as “It Gets Better (Stockholm Version),” the song is one that fans have been demanding for release since the group used it as their intro during 2019. As the Swedish House Mafia announced that “It Gets Better” would be the first single released from the group as part of their comeback earlier this year, it turned out to be a different version with an entirely new drop. This decision left many displeased and unsatisfied. Even though the official “It Gets Better” turned out to be another Swedish House Mafia masterpiece, fans continued to make it known that they wanted both versions available. They have finally gotten their wish.

Sitting at six minutes and 25 seconds, this version of the song reminds us all why we demanded it for so long. It showcases the genius that the trio is capable of creating, and it feels like the perfect track to coincide with their comeback.

Hey everyone! I was blessed to have the opportunity to join the WRY team in 2020. I edit WRY's Youtube content and am also a writer for the website. I have been a massive fan in the EDM scene for over ten years and have been fortunate enough to see some iconic moments in person. Some of my favorite artists are Avicii, Martin Garrix, Krewella, The Chainsmokers, and KSHMR. I absolutely love to attend live shows. I try to spend almost every week at some kind of live event or festival (if not in person, at least watching online). And its a guarantee you can always catch me at Ultra Miami every year! Thank you for all the support! Follow me on Twitter to see which show I will be at next! Hopefully I can see you at an event or festival soon!
