18 year old Norwegian-based, Northampton-born multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer Alan Walker looks set to dominate the world with his latest track ‘Faded’. Having already reached number one throughout Scandinavia and Germany, it really is no surprise that the track has managed to creep into the UK Top 40 and become the new ‘Worldwide Number One’ on Shazam.
Originally launched as ‘Fade’, an instrumental track popular with gamers, Walker saw the potential in it’s cinematic production and teamed up with vocalist Iselin Solheim to create a hauntingly memorable EDM-influenced track. I have no doubt this guy will be an international star. Expect this song to be in clubs everywhere very soon.
