Electronic music powerhouse Swedish House Mafia, the trio of Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso, have just shared their second new single of the post-Paradise Again era, a summer-y slice of digital euphoria appropriately titled “Ray of Solar.”

Already a fixture of recent performances, and bolstered by contributions by Tove Burman, “Ray of Solar” joins the recently released single “See The Light (feat. Friday)” as material that will ultimately serve as the foundation for an anticipated new album.

Speaking of the track the group says “Happy to be back with a song that takes us places! Once we recorded these vocals we really got transcended to space. We listened to it on repeat all night and imagined floating in space. This is the summer record for us and even though we’ve heard it a million times and still feel the power of it, it’s a really special one, the unique vocal with our style of writing melodies makes it special! Doing this together with Tove was incredible as we really felt we gave it a true Nordic sonic landscape. We love every second of it and can’t wait for the world to hear it!”

The single follows in the footsteps of last week’s release of Paradise Again: The Live Album, an expansive career-spanning 22-track documentation of the ambitious tour in support of Paradise Again intended to act as a capstone for that era.
