In the midst of Axtone Records nearing its 10th year in business, label head Axwell decided to premiere his track “Waiting for So Long (Gloria)” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, but ended up revealing news potentially much greater than the record itself.
The acclaimed radio host segued from discussion of the song and label to inquiring about the possibility of Swedish House Mafia reuniting in some fashion. Axwell firmly replied, “Of course,” and said the following:
“I think 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. But I think that the only thing is that time will tell, pretty much. But like you said, we’ve been blessed to be riding this wave, just ahead of the wave for some time, so you know we are able to do exactly what we want, which is a blessing. You know this song that we just played, it was just like no thoughts, no need, no nothing, just music. Who knows what happens in the future, we might get a sudden urge to Swedish House Mafia it up again, who knows.”
