After reuniting at Ultra Music Festival 2018, the trio of Axwell, Ingrosso and Steve Angello re-established themselves as one of the most talked-about electronic acts in the world. Their following 15-date tour saw them make stops at Creamfields, the Singapore Grand Prix, Ultra Europe and Ushuaïa Ibiza, as well as three sold-out arena shows in their native Stockholm. But after it finished, aside from a competition to win a free AAA lifetime pass and a Berlin pop-up shop, all went quiet from the Swedish House Mafia camp.
Despite playing a raft of new music during their tour, none of it was forthcoming in terms of a release, which would seem the next logical step in their return. The only word to surface came from American hip-hop producer, Mike Dean — who has worked with the likes of 2Pac, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Travis Scott — who posted a picture on Instagram of him working alongside SHM in the studio. It was captioned "COOKIN IN THE STUDIO WITH SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA". But fans are still waiting to see if new music really is on its way.
