Swedish House Mafia release first music in eight years

Swedish House Mafia have released their first new music in eight years.

'It Gets Better' is a moody divergence from their usual EDM sound and has been released alongside a video filled with dark club visuals, identical nodding heads and Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell sitting on black thrones made of electrical wire.

The Swedish trio hasn't released new music since 2012's influential 'Until Now' which included the Grammy-nominated 'Don't You Worry Child'. Following reports of fracturing within the group, they broke up during their appropriately named One Last Tour in 2013.

They briefly reunited in 2019 for the Save The World Reunion Tour - playing dates in Mexico City, Seoul, Ibiza, Berlin, Zurich and their native Stockholm.
