Alan Walker Lays Foundation of 4th Studio Album, ‘WalkerWorld’



The Norwegian superstar Alan Walker unveils the groundwork for his most meaningful and evolving project yet, WalkerWorld. The first installment includes 10 tracks — five of which are brand new — that bend sonic genres and truly take the listener to another realm.

This is just the beginning because WalkerWorld doesn’t end with this round of tracks, though, as the album will continue to change its form and shape from now as new tracks will be released and added to the album’s tracklist each month, starting on Dec. 7 with “Fire” alongside JVKE and YUQI (from (G)I-DLE) and then continuing throughout the remainder of 2024. The project also signifies the announcement and first access to Alan Walker’s in-game amusement park on Fortnite, of the same name, which will be fully launched on Dec 12. The park itself will be an iterative project with plenty of opportunity for interaction, so stay tuned for more details.

“With immense excitement and pride, I am thrilled to announce the release of my fourth studio album, ‘Walkerworld.’ November 10th is a significant day in my career as it marks the unveiling of a new body of work that will resonate with listeners until late 2024. It also heralds the introduction of an innovative and immersive chapter in the World of Walker. Not too long ago, I sat in my childhood bedroom and dreamt of creating music that could touch people’s hearts and leave a lasting impact. I am incredibly grateful to continue this journey and step into this new phase with the support of an exceptional group of talented artists, creatives, and community. This release is a milestone for every individual who has joined me on this incredible ride over the past eight years. My hope is that the album brings a sense of happiness to all who listen to it.”Alan Walker

As for the WalkerWorld album itself, it’s clear from the opening notes of the welcome track and the 10-track playlist that the veteran producer has entered his next evolution. From recently released “Heart Over Mind” with Daya to productions like “Spectre 2.0” with Steve Aoki and Lonely Boys to “Endless Summer” with Zak Abel demonstrate his signature dance-pop style, while “Land of the Heroes” with Sophie Stray is an emotive electronica gem, while Alan’s solo track “Darkride” closes out the album on a cinematic note that makes us ready for the next releases and additions to the WalkerWorld body of work. WalkerWorld is out now on all streaming platforms.

And if all of this wasn’t enough, Alan Walker is about to kick off his album-themed World tour on Nov 28 with a stream of sold-out 7 arena shows in China, making him the first DJ to sell out that many arenas in China at once, which further strengthens Walker’s position as one of the world’s most recognizable artists.
