2CELLOS Release New Music Video For "Wake Me Up" By Avicii




NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 2CELLOS, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, release a new music video for "Wake Me Up" by Avicii. Check it out here.

In the video, we see the 2CELLOS friendship grow over the course of three time periods - childhood, present day and old age (year 2069). From the classroom to the retirement home, the guys never fail to shake things up and turn heads with their creative playing and edgy humor.

They return with their new album Celloverse (Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks) on January 27, 2015.  They will head out on the U.S. leg of their world tour beginning in February.

Self-produced by Sulic and Hauser, Celloverse showcases 2CELLOS' unique ability to reinvent current and classic rock/pop songs, starting with "The Trooper Overture," a metal-meets-classical mash up of Iron Maiden's hit and Rossini's "William Tell Overture." The album includes their take on AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" (the video has 31 million views), "I Will Wait" by Mumford & Sons and Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us." Rounding out Celloverse is the Paul McCartney classic "Live and Let Die," with special guest Lang Lang and the title track, an original song penned and arranged by 2CELLOS.

2CELLOS are the first instrumentalists to be featured on Glee.  They have also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Tonight Show, and The Bachelor Live Wedding Special.  Their self-titled debut album and IN2ITION are available on Sony Music Masterworks.

Sony Masterworks comprises Masterworks, Okeh, Portrait, Sony Classical, RCA Red Seal, and Masterworks Broadway imprints. For email updates and information please visit www.SonyMasterworks.com.
