The new dance track, “Home Alone,” is available for streaming on Elgort’s personal Soundcloud account.
In addition to the new song, Elgort also performed at Ultra Music Festival this year. So has the DJ notoriety and acting fame gone to his head? According to his friend Martin Garrix, absolutely not.
“What makes Ansel so cool is his easygoing personality. He’s the most humble guy, and he’s always true to himself. He is super talented, but still the same person I met last October,” Garrix said. “And he produces his own music, which is a big deal in an industry where most people hand that job over to someone else.”
The two friends even share their music with each other before anyone else. “We send each other tracks, and we’ve played onstage together, but our friendship is about more than just music. He’s like a brother to me,” Garrix stated.
Ansolo is proving to be able to hold his own against these EDM heavyweights as well. He signed a deal with Island Records after releasing some remixes on Soundcloud.Read more to see what Ansel Elgort said about balancing careers:
