Swedish House Mafia have officially signed with Columbia Records. They will join the Sony Music label's impressive roster featuring Daft Punk, Calvin Harris, Diplo, LCD Soundsystem, and the most recent addition Gesaffelstein. Columbia was able to land the EDM group— comprised of Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso —after a tense bidding war with Universal Music Group’s Republic Records, and for “significantly less” money, according to sources.
Following a five-year hiatus, the iconic trio played a reunion show at last year's edition of Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Since then, they have been racking up their 2019 itinerary locking in headline slots for Ultra Europe/Korea, Lollapalooza Berlin, a return to Ibiza, and most recently teasing a likely slew of Los Angeles shows.
The group not only has a new label, but also new management. They announced last month that moving forward they will be represented by Ron Lafitte of Patriot Management. They are said to have "lots of new music coming." SHM's last original music was released in 2012, with their debut album Until Now, featuring hits like “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save The World.”
It looks like fans of the supergroup have a lot to look forward to this year.
