If you are not already screaming, now is the time! Two of our all-time favorite acts, the legendary global supergroup Swedish House Mafia and the iconic vocalist The Weeknd, have dropped a banger in the shape of ‘Moth To A Flame.’ We have listened to the new single all day, and truth be told, we haven’t been able to stop replaying.
We have sobbed, screamed, danced, and freaked out loud ever since SHM announced their reunion in July. And ‘Moth To A Flame’ has tripled all emotions, making us dance to the hypnotic beats and cry to The Weeknd’s melancholic vocals. Swedish House Mafia really brought back their signature sound from the good old days and modernized it. And Abel, as always, is amazing! Did we mention we are officially unstable and overwhelmed after watching the new music video? We might as well be bawling our eyes out!
‘Moth To A Flame’ MV Is All About Dancey Beats And Dark Lyrics!
What a visual treat! Riding on the theme of dark, toxic relationships, the ‘Moth To A Flame’ music video also sees relatively darker settings, from tall trees and dark forests to deep trenches, lightning, and sunsets. We’re in awe of all the artistic shots in the visual, and if we could, we’d frame this MV and hang it on our walls! The slick production by Swedish House Mafia blends amazingly well with The Weeknd’s velvety vocals. Watch the music video below:
‘Moth To A Flame’ also seems like a continuation in a series of visuals, following SHM’s recent bops ‘It Gets Better,’ and ‘Lifetime (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & 070 Shake).’ The mannequins and the crowd bear a striking resemblance to the setting, and it looks like ‘Moth To A Flame’ is another chapter in the series. Honestly, we can’t wait for the full-length album to drop!
Paradise Again Is Near!
Following the release of two new singles, the house music icons have added ‘Moth To A Flame’ to the string of new songs making up their upcoming visual album Paradise Again. It is slated for release early next year, with a Special Edition CD available for pre-order now. And as if that wasn’t already enough to send us into a chaotic frenzy, Swedish House Mafia has also announced their international tour for 2022 produced by Live Nation – their first proper run since 2012.
This is where we jump higher than we ever did, ’cause didn’t we all crazy-miss them? We know you did! The 2022 ride will follow the Swedish House Mafia’s just-announced performance at Coachella 2022. It will also include arenas across the US and Europe. Tickets to see our heroes deliver bombastic live performances will go on sale to the general public next Friday, 29th October here. If you pre-order the Special Tour Edition CD, you will also receive exclusive access to the pre-sale of the tour tickets beginning on 27th October.
Fasten your seatbelts, SHM is back!
