Shot entirely on Snapchat, the video captures the exciting, life of Otto Knows with guest appearances by everyone from James Cameron to Sebastian Ingrosso.
Following up on ‘Dying For You’, Otto Knows continues his vast musical evolution alongside one of the biggest names in dance music. Showcasing the melodic stamp and live instrumentation that has hallmarked his studio output to date, ‘Back Where I Belong’ signals Otto Knows’ continuing ability to both craft hit tracks and ignite dancefloors all over the world.
Otto Knows and AVICII share a long history which dates back to them being in the same class at school. They first started working on music together when Otto was working at Sebastian Ingrosso’s Refune label, and they were particularly inspired by the prospect of following the Swedish House Mafia into the charts. Their first official collaboration was ‘iTrack’ which also featured Oliver Ingrosso, and it heightened Otto’s reputation further after receiving a rush of attention for his bootleg of Imogen Heap’s ‘Hide & Seek’.
Otto, AVICII and guest vocalist LP wrote ‘Back Where I Belong’ together in Los Angeles, using a chord progression by Simon Strömstedt (singer and co-writer of Otto’s previous hits ‘Next To Me’ and ‘Parachute’) as a basis. Otto then continued on the production him and Avicii had started on in LA. Otto then completed the song back home in Sweden and his old friend was happy with the final result and wanted to be featured on the single release.
2015 was another stellar year for the Stockholm-based talent Otto Jettman. Garnering triple platinum status in Sweden and gold in all Nordic countries for his single ‘Next To Me’, the summer saw Otto make landmark appearances at Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Summerburst Festival and Ushuaïa Ibiza. In addition, he also signed to At Night Management in a co-management deal alongside Sebastian Ingrosso.
Otto puts viewers in the front seat as we fly across the world, festival stage to epic pool parties in the unique and one-of-a-kind music video.
