“Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child, see heaven’s got a plan for you”
The successful music trio, Swedish House Mafia, have announced their final album; “Until Now” which includes their famous hit “Don’t you worry child”.
The “Until Now” track list is sure to include old favourites and new ones in order to end off their journey with a bang. The album also includes a collaboration of music with artists such as Coldplay and Florence and the Machine.
The album was released on the 22nd of October 2012, exactly two years after their first album entitled “Until One”. And I cannot wait to get my hands on it since I am self-confessed Swedish House Mafia groupie.
The reason for the release of this album was that it would form the sound track for ‘One Last Tour’ which is the trio’s final tour before they split.
I personally think that this split is a big mistake as the trio is so loved by fans that they have a very bright future ahead of them. Their album is also one that is going to be played for years to come and it is a shame that they are leaving us with only this, and not continuing their music mastery.
The Swedish electric dance trio is comprised of three house jockeys and producers namely Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso.
They have announced that their last tour will be held from November 2012 to March 2013. During this final tour they will also be making an appearance in South Africa. They will be playing in Johannesburg on the 25th and 26th of January and in Cape Town on the 27th of January 2013.
After this final tour, the trio of music masters have decided to split up. The reason for this was given by Steve Angello in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine:
“We just decided that we reached a point where we don’t know what the next move would be. We always like the challenge. And we don’t like to repeat ourselves. We just felt like it was time.”
Their two major songs of the moment, “Greyhound” and “Don’t you Worry Child” are making waves all over the world and are to be found on this album.
The two different sounds show how the band have developed and found their niche in different varieties of music. I personally find that these two songs are amazing to listen to and are completely accessible no matter what your taste in music.
The song “Don’t you worry child” is the sixth and final single to be released by the group. It was released globally on the 14 September 2012, and has been eating up the charts ever since.
The song was written whilst the group was in Australia and was written as a tribute to the beauty they discovered in the country.
The song makes a stand for the journey that the trio have travelled together and this is shown by the music video which includes live footage of the many tours they have done over the years. The song also includes vocals from Swedish singer, John Martin.
The sound is less ‘house’ as opposed to their harsher “Greyhound” and thus it has become more famous amongst the commercial world. I think it is easier to relate to as it satisfies more people’s tastes whereas “Greyhound” serves only those who appreciate plain electric beats.
Bringing everything into consideration, the song “Don’t you worry child” is a career changing song in terms of music and not one that is easily going to be forgotten. It only adds to the credibility and merits of the album, which has come full circle in terms of variety and success in comparison to their first album “Until One”.
