Swedish house music DJ and producer, Axwell, celebrates tenth birthday of his record label, Axtone Records, with the release of a deluxe compilation ‘Axtone Ten’, out December 11th. The album features his first solo single since 2013 ‘Waiting for So Long (Gloria),’ a wedding dedication from the producer to his wife Gloria. Former Swedish House Mafia member produced a considerably slower track than most of his worldwide hits, like 2013’s ‘Center of the Universe’.
Listen Axwell’s ‘Waiting for So Long (Gloria)’ here:
“My solo work is more of a vent or an outlet for music that feels more personal to me,” Axwell told Rolling Stone. “I thought my wife deserved something money couldn’t buy — a song just for her.”
In an interview with Zane Lowe, Axwell also hinted at the possibility of a Swedish House Mafia reunion. “We think about it every now and then, you know — what we left, what we did, what we accomplished and everything, and how it would be to do something together again,” he said. “Who knows what happens in the future, we might get a sudden urge for Swedish House Mafia again.”
Axwell said about his record label: “The craziest part is that we’ve had people working and building a record label for a decade, but successfully, even in these days of the music business going down. That to me is amazing. We’ve been able to make a business out of my own music, other artists’ talent and the dedicated team behind the label. That feels special. Back in the day, having your own label sounded impossible. It’s crazy to see where we are now.”
We are very curious: what do you think of this song?!
