The label company Astralwerks Records revealed an interesting new partnership this week. As a matter of fact, the American record label came to an agreement with SIZE Records, Steve Angello‘s imprint. The announcement was made on July 20, via different platforms.
Under the terms of this deal, all future SIZE Records releases will be distributed by Astralwerks, with the agreement also encompassing SIZE’s back catalog. Speaking of which, this catalog contains music from major artists in the industry, such as Laidback Luke, Eric Prydz, Afrojack, Don Diablo, AN21, Junior Sanchez, and Steve Angello himself, obviously.
The new partnership also aims to celebrate a new milestone for SIZE Records. In fact, Steve Angello released his collaboration with masked duo Wh0 on Friday (July 21). The song, titled ‘What You Need‘, is the first one to come out of this deal.
Angello and Astralwerks are no strangers to working with one another. Back in the day, the label released Swedish House Mafia’s compilation albums, 2010’s Until One and 2012’s Until Now. Obviously, these two albums contained the trio’s all-time hits ‘One (Your Name)’ and ‘Don’t You Worry Child’. Here is what Angello told Billboard about the deal with Astralwerks Records.
“While I’m excited to honor the legacy of SIZE Records by re-launching the catalog, I’m every bit as thrilled by what the future holds. Teaming with Wh0 to make ‘What You Need’ the inaugural new release on the imprint feels like the perfect way to set the tone for everything we have planned. It’s a new era, new team, new SIZE, new collaborations, new music and lots of it! My gratitude to Astralwerks for taking this journey with us at SIZE!”
