The jazzinotes edition of Faded sticks to the original recording of the Restrung version: The piano score is notated exactly according to the piano as recorded in the original - with one exception: In chorus two the right hand plays the strings melody, which presents the lead melody in this part. The vocals as well present exactly what Iselin Solheim sings. You will find the chords notated above the notes and the lyrics beneath.
Alan Walker, the co-composer and co-songwriter of Faded, was born in England August 24th 1997 to an English father and a Norwegian mother. At the age of two, the family moved to Norway where Alan still lives in Bergen. In the beginning he produced some remixes without contract and published them on SoundCloud, Spotify and YouTube. His style may be regarded close to Trance, Hardstyle or Hands up. In 2014 he signed a contract with NoCopyrightSounds. At the same time this label legalized the digital downloads and sold them as single releases at music streaming services. The first production under this label was Fade, an instrumental tune influenced by progressive and electro house. This recording was a huge success: The number of the streams on Spotify as well as the numbers of clicks on YouTube quickly passed the million mark several times. As recent as 2015 Alan Walker performed on stage and signed a contract with the major label Sony in order to launch the successful output of a single. With a vocal version of Fade, called Faded, it was a great success. In this version the Norwegian singer Iselin Solheim was part of the achievement. Already by the end of 2015 the tune reached number 1 in the Swedish and Norwegian charts. In 2016 a whole range of other countries followed, e. g. Germany and France. Restrung is an acoustic version, where the piano is very important, both on the recording and in the video.
