Global supergroup Swedish House Mafia have shared a new music video for “Heaven Takes You Home,” the emotional core of their debut full length Paradise Again, featuring a bouyant vocal performance by the English singer-songwriter Connie Constance, who also directed the accompanying visual.
The video is an ebullient glimpse into the central role that music plays in Connie’s life among her circle of friends, based around a concept created with the band. The song is in its second week at No.1 on Dance Radio, another major milestone for the album after debuting at No.1 on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
“It’s been the most incredible journey working with Swedish House Mafia,” states Constance. “From creating a beautiful song that is so dear to me, to then directing the video, I cannot be grateful enough for how empowering this process has been. Everyone you will see in this video and even most of the crew has changed my life in some shape or form which feels propitious as this song is currently doing the same. I wanted to create a video for SHM that might be shown at a wedding or sadly a funeral.
“All the best bits, and the best people. It’s not the London eye or the River Thames that makes London. It’s the people that keep the culture so diverse and the energy so dynamic. I hope this video gives an insight to the young dreamers in the city and how together we help each-other pass all limitations and take over the world…until heaven takes you home and you’ve got the most triumphant story to tell.”
On July 29, the band will kick off their long awaited Paradise Again Tour at Miami’s FTX Arena. The concert marks the band’s first major live engagement since their headlining performance with pop auteur The Weeknd at Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival in April, which doubled as a preview of the stunning live production and visual spectacle of the forthcoming global run. The band will be joined on select dates by support acts Alesso, ZHU, Grimes, Vintage Culture, and more.
