Dance music innovator and globally acclaimed producer/DJ, Steve Angello, has launched the first official single from his upcoming solo album. ‘Wasted Love’ featuring Dougy from The Temper Trap is available to purchase now through all digital retailers.
Steve Angello was a pioneer of the Stockholm underground music scene before gaining international acclaim as a member of the groundbreaking electronic dance trio Swedish House Mafia. Swedish House Mafia have sold more than 3 Million singles in the U.S. alone, including their smash pop hit ‘Don’t You Worry Child’, and were the first ever Dance Group to sell out Madison Square Garden.
Angello recently debuted ‘Wasted Love’ to his fans during a massive performance at the UK’s famed T in the Park festival, and the song is already receiving early critical acclaim. MTV praised the track for “mixing Angello’s signature EDM with Dougy’s hypnotic vocals”, while BBC Newsbeat commended its “melodic, instrumental dance music sound”.
‘Wasted Love’ features vocals from Dougy Mandagi, lead vocalist from the anthemic Australian band The Temper Trap, and a longtime fan of Angello’s prolific repertoire of breakthrough signature tracks. The striking lyric video for the new single, shot inAngello’s native Stockholm, features amazing aerial views and up-close fan reactions at his live shows, all through stunning black and white visuals.
The inspiring collaboration with Dougy is one of many unique pairings anticipated to be on Angello’s upcoming debut album, WILD YOUTH, declared by Dancing Astronaut to be “one of dance music’s most awaited albums in recent history…”
‘Wasted Love’ is also receiving early international radio support, with Radio 1’s Zane Lowe debuting the song as “Hottest Record in the World,” and SiriusXM’s Sr. Director of Programming, Geronimo, noting, “after one play, the song far exceeded any expectations…the early buzz on the song has been phenomenal”.
Steve Angello is currently putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming solo album, WILD YOUTH, due out in the Spring of 2014 via Columbia Records on Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
