The Croatian duo of Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser, better known as 2CELLOS, return with an all-new album, Let There Be Cello. A follow-up to the 2017 release of Score, Let There Be Cello finds the pair exploring a diverse catalogue with their signature boundary-breaking playing style.

“We’ve always said we want to break down pre-conceptions about the cello and the boundaries around musical genres,” says 2CELLOS on their latest project.  “This album demonstrates that. We take inspiration from all sources, from pop smashes to timeless classical music, from classic rock through to our enduring love of film music. This album has the lot – including some 2CELLOS’ originals. There are no rules, just let there be cello!”

Co-produced by Šulić and Hauser themselves as well as Filip Vidovic, Let There Be Cello is a showcase of 2CELLOS’ exceptional talent for reinventing the music of any genre. The collection includes their take on the latest pop hits, including Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, a fan-favourite rendition that has garnered over 30 million views on 2CELLOS’ YouTube alone.  Known for bringing their explosive playing style to some of rock’s biggest anthems, 2CELLOS make no exception on Let There Be Cello, which features favourites “Eye Of The Tiger” by Survivor and The White Stripes’ iconic “Seven Nation Army,” which the pair most recently performed on-field to open May’s UEFA Champions League final in Ukraine.  Taking their classical instrumentation to new heights, 2CELLOS round out the newest album with everything from celebrated classics (“Imagine” by John Lennon, “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen) to never-before-heard original compositions (“Concept2,” “Cadenza”) for a listening experience unlike any other.
The 2CELLOS will be on tour in Australia November 23rd Perth, November 24th Melbourne, November 26th Adelaide, November 28th Sydney, November 30th Gold Coast and December 2nd Brisbane.
