Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, the 24 year-old Ukranian duo known as 2CELLOS became an overnight internet sensation with their self-made music video of themselves performing Michael Jackson‘s “Smooth Criminal” on their cellos. With “Smooth Criminal” racking up over 5 million views on YouTube, Sulic and Hauser have premiered the video for the next 2CELLOS single on VEVO: A rocking rendition of the Guns N’ Roses worldwide hit, “Welcome to the Jungle.”
Of the new single Sulic says: “Covering “Welcome to the Jungle” was a real challenge but that one we were up for! We chose this song because we thought that it could sound like a whole symphony using only our 2 cellos. We’re really proud of it and think it rocks!”
The 2CELLOS debut self-titled album will be released this summer on July 19th via Sony Masterworks, and the duo will kick off a European summer tour opening for Elton John on June 8th at Cardiff International Arena in Wales.
2CELLOS is now available for pre-order on the 2CELLOS website. Each pre-order of the CD comes with a free 11″ x 17″ poster/calendar. An instant MP3 download of “Smooth Criminal” will be included with pre-order of either the CD or MP3 version of the album. The debut album features Sulic & Hauser‘s unique spin on hits by Guns N’ Roses, U2, Coldplay and Kings of Leon among others.
“We grew up with Michael Jackson, U2 and Nirvana. The melody and structure of their songs really inspired us to arrange them for 2 cellos. Bands like Coldplay, Kings of Leon and Muse also write songs with those similar melodic qualities – so we had a great time digging in and making them part of this album too,” says Luka Sulic.
