After a conversation with his label, Atlantic Records, he was able to push back the release of his latest album, ‘Actual Life 3’, by three weeks.

It is the latest addition to his trademark soundscape series, some tracks from the album (and their remixes) are already released: ‘Jungle [and its Remix with Rico Nasty], Lights Out[with Romy and HAAi] and Admit It (you don’t want 2)[with I. JORDAN]’.

Each ‘Actual Life‘ project features vocals uncovered from the unlikeliest of sources; obscure YouTube clips, personal Facetime Recordings, half-remembered iPhone footage – this list goes on.

Ensuring AL3 is not pushed back any further, Fred invited Swedish House Mafia to jump on the project.

The Swedish supergroup, consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, supported Fred in the final stretch of the track’s development.

When SHM get involved, you can be certain the track is going to go BIG.

They were spotted playing the track to a gigantic crowd at the GME-owned Ibiza venue, Usuaïa.
