Alan Walker said of the song, “Earlier this year, Vikkstar and I decided to go to the studio together - we started on a new version of the 90s hit 'Better Off Alone' by Alice Deejay. Little did I know what awaited me when we decided to release this track just a few weeks ago.”
- He continued, “In recent weeks, we've not only worked on giving a new life into this iconic melody but also had the opportunity to collaborate with the original producers of 'Better Off Alone,' Seb & Eelke, who are also the masterminds behind theTrance project Dash Berlin They've introduced us to their new frontman, Ryan, and together, we've recorded the track, filmed a music video, and had some fantastic days of planning and promotion in Oslo. Along the way, I've even been hunted by a crazy cat smurf who seemed to be following me around, but now we're finally ready to share the song and music video with all of you.”
He added, “You all know how much I value collaboration and the magic that happens when people come together to make music and share experiences. Being a part of this journey has been an absolute honor. I've learned a lot from the legends behind Dash Berlin and watched Vikk as he released his first official song.I want to say a big thank you for being a part of my journey. Potato you all.”
