2CELLOS, music's most electric and dynamic instrumental duo, return with their new album Celloverse (Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks) on January 27, 2015. Supported by a world tour with the U.S. leg kicking off Feb. 19 in Minneapolis,  2CELLOS latest music video from Celloverse, is their take on Avicii's hit "Wake Me Up," check it out here.

Self-produced by cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, Celloverse showcases 2CELLOS' unique ability to reinvent current and classic rock/pop songs, starting with "The Trooper Overture," a metal-meets-classical mash up of Iron Maiden's hit and Rossini's "William Tell Overture." The album includes their take on AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" (the video has 31 million views), "I Will Wait" by Mumford & Sons, "Shape of My Heart" by Sting and Michael Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us." Rounding out Celloverse is the Paul McCartney classic "Live and Let Die," with special guest Lang Lang and the title track, an original song penned and arranged by 2CELLOS.

Propelled into international fame in 2011 after their version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" went viral with 20 million-plus YouTube views, Sulic and Hauser return to their rock roots on this their third album. Watch them perform the song "Thunderstuck" for Kathie Lee and Hoda on NBC's Today Show.
