2CELLOS are back with their third album, which returns to the sound and concept of their debut, building on Luka Sulic & Stjepan Hauser’s unique ability to re-imagine current and classic rock and pop songs with their own extraordinary energy – blasting instrumental music off into a whole new CELLOVERSE.
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 over 27 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.
“In terms of arrangements and production, as well as playing and sound, this is our most advanced album,” says Sulic, “and we’re so excited to share it with our fans around the world!”
2CELLOS playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. They have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out. They have sold out shows around the globe and also performed with Sir Elton John as part of his band, as well as opening his shows to rapturous acclaim. Hauser says, “We have so much intensity, energy and audience interaction that you really have to see us live!”
