2CELLOS Announce New Album, Dedicated, Celebrating Their 10th Anniversary

New single and video "I Don't Care" out today

Published on July 26, 2021

Having racked up billion-plus audio streams, countless sold-out concerts, and millions of fans across the globe in their ten years together as 2CELLOS, the Croatian duo of Luka Šulić and HAUSER announce their sixth full-length album Dedicated, out Friday, September 17 via Sony Masterworks. Available for preorder now, Dedicated celebrates the group’s momentous 10-year-anniversary, the album’s namesake an apt nod to 2CELLOS’ continued dedication to each other, their fans, the instrument and their signature playing style. The group will also make their long-awaited return to the stage in support of the new album, kicking off their 2022 U.S. Dedicated Tour on March 26 at Rosemont’s Allstate Arena before stopping at iconic venues including New York’s Barclays Center (April 3) and Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl (April 15) – full U.S. tour dates and ticketing information can be found here (tickets on sale at 12 pm Local Time.) Making its debut alongside album preorder today is 2CELLOS’ latest single, “I Don’t Care,” a smooth rendition of the Ed Sheeran hit, as well as an accompanying music video featuring special and never-before-seen moments from the duo’s career over the last decade.

The news arrives on the heels of their latest single releases, “Demons,” a haunting version of the Imagine Dragons’ hit song, and “Livin’ on a Prayer,” a vibrant rendition of the Bon Jovi rock classic. Following a brief hiatus for 2CELLOS, where they each took some time to reflect on their accomplishments and relax, the duo linked up again in the studio amidst the 2020 global pandemic to reimagine the pop anthems and timeless rock staples that encompass the ten tracks on their forthcoming album, Dedicated. The arrangement process relied on a combination of gut instinct and intense study, practice, and transposition as the duo recharged instantly recognizable by everyone from Billie Eilish to Guns N’ Roses.

“Breaks are good for reflection,” says HAUSER of their new album. “You look back on all you’ve done so far and which direction you want to take for the future. We were traveling so much that we never had this kind of time for reflection. Everything is so much clearer.” Šulić adds, “We always planned to come back, and we came into Dedicated with a fresh approach and energy. We haven’t been on stage for two years now, so we can’t wait to get back out!”

Dedicated finds 2CELLOS exploring a diverse catalog with their signature boundary-breaking playing style. The collection includes their take on everything from classic pop hits (“bad guy” by Billie Eilish, “Shallow” by Lady Gaga, “Halo” by Beyonce) to hard-hitting rock songs (“Cryin'” by Aerosmith, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses, “Wherever I Go” by OneRepublic) to celebrated classics (“Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel) for a one-of-a-kind listening experience. Complete track list below.

“When you listen to us, we hope you realize the cello is a versatile and diverse instrument capable of playing the hardest rock, the softest ballad, and the most contemporary of music,” HAUSER concludes. “It moves you in a way that’s equally powerful. It has a whole palette of emotions, ups, and downs. We’re trying to give you an experience you can’t get anywhere else.”
