“It’s an amazing feeling to be able to release my debut album ‘Different World’. These past years have been absolutely surreal, and I surely never imagined that I would get to this point when I first started. I’ve released a series of singles, but to put together a full-length album is very different for me. It is something that I’ve worked on for quite some time now, and I’m super excited to finally share it with the world and hear the reaction from my fans!” – Alan Walker
