The track is definitely not the first version we have heard during the reunion tour. It sounds more housy and kind of techno, with a clean beat on the drop and tidy percussive rhythm. Something very different from the festival huge hard-hitting sound we are used to hear during their shows.
Played for the first time in Stockholm at Tele2 Arena during their reunion tour in 2019, It Gets Better has been one of the new IDs played after the reunion, as well as one of the first new music since Don’t You Worry Child, released 9 years ago.
The record has appeared today on Beatport. It is listed as released on Republic Records. The track initially appeared only if you were searching for it on Beatport or if you were visiting the Swedish House Mafia profile on the website.
