Few things will rock your emotions as much as the new Steve Angello track “Wasted Love”. The collaboration with vocalist Dougy Mandagi from The Temper Trap is reminiscent of an 80s new wave ballad and just as resonant. The vocals soar through a powerhouse production of synths, reverb and strings creating an alluring state of glamorized nostalgia. “I want it to feel alive” Angello told Rolling Stone.
The track is the lead single from Angello’s upcoming album Wild Youth due this fall. The album is Angello’s first and is accompanied by some lofty expectations. The former Swedish House Mafia star noted to MTV that dance music needs a resurgence of creativity, and described the album to Rolling Stone as a “self-discovery”.
