Alan Walker has experienced a come up like no other — and now he’s finally breaking new ground with his debut album Different World. Since his breakout hit “Faded” took the EDM world by storm three years ago, fans have been dying to hear a full body of work from the buzz-worthy global superstar.
There’s a plethora of collaborators on his formal collection, which includes Steve Aoki, Noah Cyrus, and Digital Farm Animals, to name a few. Instead of shying away from the help of others, Walker has also enlisted in a number of talented producers on the album, so check out the credits on Spotify to hear what’s what.
“Faded” finds a spot on the album, as well as other recognizable releases including “All Falls Down” and “Alone.” There’s plenty more new material to be heard as Walker takes a huge next step in discovering his sound.
In an exclusive interview with Billboard, he opened up about his inclusion of “Faded” and his journey thus far as an artist:
This is undoubtedly the track that most people associate me with, and it’s kind of crazy to think that it was released three years ago. I’m always asked what this track means to me, and the best way to describe is probably that it literally changed my life forever. These past three years have been absolutely incredible for me, and I never imagined the impact this single would have when I first released it when I was 18 years old. The best way to end the album, in my opinion.
