In January this year, Alan Walker performed his music for friends and classmates, and now he instead holds concerts for about 30 music festivals worldwide. There is no doubt the career of EDM superstar has skyrocketed over the past year, much thanks to the single “Faded“, which has been watched close to 800 million times on YouTube. He followed it with another hugely brilliant remix for Coldplay’s “Hymn for the Weekend”. After a largely successful year, the 18-year old plans to wrap up 2016 with a single titled “Alone” and it features some fascinating undercover lyrics by Noonie Bao.
Alan Walker released his new single “Alone” on all digital platforms. Along with the audio, he also released a music video for his new single which on Youtube alone has garnered over 11 million hits since its release on the 2nd Dec.

‘Alone’ shows Alan Walker’s unique production talent opening with chord progression, picking up speed with rising percussion pushing the energy upwards. The single also showcases Bao’s angelic vocals. Bao is a Swedish singer who has written songs for the likes of Charli XCX or MØ and collaborated with Avicii.
The song is about the dark times, in fact, the darkest of them, when there is no hope. That’s when you realize that you are still not alone, even during the worst times. There is always someone for you. Someone would always be there to help you. You just gotta believe.
