2019 is the year of Swedish House Mafia‘s return after a five-year hiatus. The trio has continuously made music industry headlines since announcing nine shows in the upcoming year after their momentous reunion at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello have announced residencies with Wynn Nightlife, and longtime manager Amy Thomson announced her departure as Swedish House Mafia’s manager with a touching post.
It has now been revealed that Ron Lafitte of Patriot Management will be taking Thomson’s reins in working with the trio moving forward. Lafitte started his career working in heavy metal with the likes of Metallica and Megadeth. He now oversees everyone from Pharrell Williams and OneRepublic, to the Backstreet Boys. The dance titans have not announced a label deal as of yet, but it has all but been confirmed that they are working on new music.

Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving at the end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x
