    That didn't last long!

    Axwell & Ingrosso, late of Swedish House Mafia, are back working on music together, releasing an album under the moniker Axwell / Ingrosso. This will be their first ever artist album, as Swedish House Mafia never released a full album, despite selling over 10 million records.

    It would appear the majority of the record is now ready and the release will be this year.

    Axwell / Ingrosso will perform for the first time, including the new music, during their headline slot at Governor's Ball in New York, NY, on June 8.

    Solidifying their union, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso merged their Facebook pages to form a singular page for the band, a feat never done before.

    They melted their feeds, effectively erasing their pages and individual history, in order to begin again.

    They will go on to headline The Light in Las Vegas and the Bravalla Festival in Sweden with Kanye West. Axwell / Ingrosso will also continue their residency at Ushuaia in Ibiza on Wednesdays from June 25 with their event concept, "Departures."

    Axwell / Ingrosso plan to bring things back around again to focus on the music in their heads and hearts.

    That's always a noble goal.

    Performing together as Axwell / Ingrosso in New York has special meaning for the duo, having been chosen to light the Empire State Building and, in 2012, throwing a Black Tie Rave in New York to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to relief efforts. The city honored them by turning the Empire State Building to blue and yellow, the colors of Sweden.
