Swedish House Mafia (Feat. John Martin) – Don’t You Worry Child


Get your handkerchiefs out, this might be the last Swedish House Mafia studio release ever.

As you’ve probably heard, the trio decided to call it quits over the summer. Afterward, an onslaught of skepticism and reflection about the dance music world ensured.

Despite what you may think of the trio and the commercialization of dance music, you have to respect the careers of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso.

Now, ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ isn’t exactly ‘Leave The World Behind,’ shit, it’s probably not even ‘Greyhound,’ but the novelty of the song and the emotions it may bring, being the last one ever and all, should be taken into consideration.

Shot with footage of their historic performance at Milton Keynes Bowl over the summer, we’re given a documentary-feel into the last go ’round for Swedish House Mafia.

It’s tough to be sold on John Martin’s vocals, but, hey, this was probably made more for the radio waves than Beatport charts.

Until next time, Swedish House Mafia. Because, we think there will be a next time.

Out today on EMI UK, an extended and instrumental mix will be out on Oct. 5.

Purchase: Beatport

    It gets blurry in the progressive world, yes. But, this seems to be more of a radio song than a progressive production–like “Titanium.” This will obviously get support, but I can’t see too many DJs playing such a flagrant musical song. Now, if remixes start rolling in–a la “Save The World”– those will enjoy truer Beatport success. We shall see.

    the musical side may deter or not, to be seen indeed.
    What I would WISH actually deters are the inane lyrics. DItto for Save the World.
    True for Adele also btw.
    That’s whats good about the Berghain sound to name just one: hardly any words, because if there is nothing worth saying, better not say at all

    That’s the worst part of pop’s influence on dance music, ever since the disco days.

    Just heard this song on z100. It is not on the top 10 on Beatport’s progressive charts.
