Speaking to NME about ‘Paradise Again’ back in November, SHM said that the record would serve as “an invitation into our world”.

In a four-star review of the new album, NME said: “Swedish House Mafia’s debut album sees the trio flexing their musical and emotional muscles across 17 brilliant, fearless and often surprising tracks. The kings of dance music are very much back.”

Earlier this month, the group shared a new video for ‘Heaven Takes You Home (Connie’s Lens)’. The song features a vocal from singer-songwriter Connie Constance, who also directed the song’s accompanying visual.

In April, they headlined the third night of Coachella with The Weeknd, replacing Kanye West, who pulled out of his closing night headline sets earlier in the month.
