Today, GRAMMY Award-nominated electronic music titans and global supergroup Swedish House Mafia unveil a new single entitled “See The Light.” It notably serves as the first release from the forthcoming EA Sports’ Formula 1 Soundtrack Album. The song also lands in tandem with the Monaco F1 Grand Prix. Listen to “See The Light”—HERE. This spring, the trio—Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso—slipped the track into their monumental closing set at ULTRA Music Festival in Miami, stirring up anticipation for its eventual arrival. With its propulsive synths, effusive energy, and otherworldly vocal transmissions, it finds Swedish House Mafia shining as brightly as ever, showcasing the hallmarks of their striking and stunning signature sound. To celebrate the single’s drop, the guys just revealed the details for an intimate exclusive fan show at E1 London on tomorrow Saturday May 27. Concluding this UK takeover, they cap off the weekend by gracing the mainstage of Creamfields South on Sunday May 28. The members shared, ”We missed our UK family and can’t wait to be back to celebrate the release and the new chapter of what’s to come.” Swedish House Mafia continue their recent renaissance. To date, they have gathered north of 10 billion global artist streams with their 2022 album, Paradise Again, accounting for over 2.5 billion streams. “Heaven Takes You Home” [feat. Connie Constance] soared to #1 at US dance radio, gathering 230 million total streams. Paradise Again also bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and claimed a spot in the Top 20 of the respective chart for 19 weeks. They also notably produced The Weeknd’s “Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength)” from the blockbuster Avatar: The Way of Water (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) and film.

About Swedish House Mafia: In 2008, a trio of individual artists, DJs, and producers united to unassumingly break every rule in electronic music. Ensconced in flames, Swedish House Mafia—Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell—infused house music with swaggering hip-hop beat-craft, rock ‘n’ roll attitude, and big screen-worthy grandeur brought to life on stage with one legendary live show after another. Ushering dance music culture out of the warehouses and clubs and into arenas and stadiums on an unrivaled scale, it would be nearly impossible to imagine how the genre might’ve shaken out without them. They became the first electronic act to headline (and sell out) Madison Square Garden in 2011 and the first to grace the main stage at Coachella in 2012. They garnered two consecutive GRAMMY® nominations in the category of “Best Dance Recording” for the platinum “Save the World” in 2012 and quintuple-platinum Hot 100 Top 10 hit “Don’t You Worry Child” in 2013. Rolling Stone described their meteoric rise as “redefining rave culture,” and NME christened them “the rockstars of the dance music world.” The marathon record-breaking One Last Tour paved the way for a five-year break before they returned as surprise headliners of Ultra Music Festival’s 20th anniversary in 2018. Following the Save The World Reunion Tour a year later, this holy trinity of electronic music gods focused on the one thing they hadn’t done yet, making their 2022 full-length debut album Paradise Again [Republic Records]. Their return was announced with the cover of Billboard and garnered immediate press and a late-night television performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon followed with a trending hit “A Moth To A Flame” featuring The Weeknd. Upon arrival, it bowed in the Top 10 of seven global charts, seizing #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart and #1 on the UK Dance Albums Chart. Moreover, it attracted some of the highest critical praise of the group’s storied career thus far from Pitchfork, NME, and more. It only hints at more to come.
