“Diamond Heart” is the final single/video in the World Of Walker trilogy, presenting Walker’s futuristic, post-apocalyptic sci-fi storyline as seen in the “Darkside” and “All Falls Down” visuals, all presenting hopeful views for the future with majestic landscapes. The video before “All Falls Down,” “Tired” directed by Alexander Halvorsen, served as a prequel to the trilogy where a solar storm destroyed all technology on earth, changing the course of humanity forever. These videos, storyline and concept are the brainchild of MER Records creative director Kristian Berg.
Previous single, “Darkside” released at the end of July, has already enjoyed over 200 million streams between the video and audio track combined, and “All Falls Down” has exploded with OVER 600 million audio and video streams globally, held the #1 spot on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs Chart, and enjoyed play on Top 40 radio stations.
The enigmatic young DJ, known for his masked performances, enjoyed a sold out European headlining tour this year, performed at Electric Zoo Festival, Lollapalooza Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland and Lollapalooza South America, and joined label mate Kygo on tour for select North American dates.
In the past two years, 20-year-old Alan Walker has gone from learning music production via YouTube tutorials and posting music online for free to performing to sold-out crowds and playing dates with the likes of Rihanna and Justin Bieber. Currently, Alan has been certified Gold and/or Platinum in 32 countries.
Alan’s fan base first exploded when the gaming community’s use of his music made him one of the most streamed artists globally (over 14 billion streams worldwide to date) and made his debut single, “Faded,” the seventh most-liked video on YouTube of all time with over 5.8 billion streams worldwide. He boasts over 17 million followers on YouTube alone. On DJ Mag’s annual poll where people from all over the world voted for their favorite DJs, Alan moved up 38 places on this year’s list to number 17. Alan was also awarded the magazine’s “Highest Climber” award, which celebrates the DJ that moved up the list in ranking the most in the span of a year.
Alan made his U.S. television debut this past January with “All Falls Down,” joined by Noah Cyrus on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He also performed at the League of Legends World Finals in a packed SRO Bejing National Stadium concert, where the historic Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony was held.
