“…a classic…Swedish House Mafia are electronic music’s new kings, and ‘Save the World’ firmly entrenches their place on the throne.” – ArtistDirect.com
Returning with what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest records of the summer, Swedish House Mafia are proud to launch their official video for new single “Save The World,” premiering today on VEVO. Directed by Jon Watts the video takes a new direction for the Swedes featuring some rather houndish superheroes. Swedish House Mafia said: “We really wanted a change in the way we worked with film. The strangest things can save your world and we wanted to drop our normal style and start this campaign with something new.”
Proclaimed as “one of the biggest records of the summer” by Clubplanet, “Save The World” was released on Tuesday and is already the #1 Breakout on the Billboard Dance chart, #1 at Beatport and #5 on the iTunes Dance chart. The remix bundles will follow on June 19th, 2011, featuring remixes by Alesso, Style Of Eye, Third Party and more.

2010 was an incredible breakthrough year for Swedish House Mafia; they sold a million singles worldwide, achieved an iTunes Number 1 Dance Album with Until One, and landed a #1 Billboard Dance hit with “Miami 2 Ibiza”. The trio also garnered 55 million Youtube views for their videos and over a million Facebook fans. Releasing an acclaimed documentary film “Take One” as well as an innovative iPad App, their success translated into sold out events around the world in hotspots like Miami, Las Vegas and Ibiza.
On to 2011 and Swedish House Mafia return with what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest records of the summer. Debuted at their groundbreaking Masquerade Motel event in Miami this spring (check out the amazing footage here), “Save The World” will be released digitally on May 17th. In the US, the track will premiere on SiriusXM’s BPM, channel 51, at 9 PM EST on May 6th, followed by an exclusive taped broadcast of Swedish House Mafia’s set at Masquerade Motel Miami on SiriusXM’s Electric Area, channel 52.
“Save The World” will receive its UK live debut when the electronic three-piece headline (along with Foo Fighters) this year’s Radio One Big Weekend on May 14th. Their sold-out UK headline tour follows later in May (to an audience of 40,000 people over 4 dates!) and is set to raise the bar even higher with an amazing light show and special guests. Other chances to see the extravaganza this year include T In The Park, Oxegen and Creamfields. This amazing live show will come to the US later this year when Swedish House Mafia headline the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas on June 26th, 2011.
