Yesterday, Def Jam Records released some major news! Axwell Λ Ingrosso have signed with Def Jam Records in the United States and Virgin / EMI in the United Kingdom. On top of this signing, they announced that they are releasing a debut album in early 2015. This is amazing as when they were apart of Swedish House Mafia, they didn’t even have an actual album per-say, yet they sold 10,000,000 records. Steve Bartels, CEO of Def Jam Recordings said this about the signing:
We are proud at Def Jam to have Axwell /\ Ingrosso choose us to be their label home. Their music is forward, innovative, invigorating and boundless. Def Jam has the artistry and energy of DJ culture within its pedigree, right there in our logo. This is a significant moment for all of us as at Def Jam.
