Originally an instrumental from August 2014 titled “Fade,” Alan released this updated version with vocals in December 2015 under the slightly-altered name “Faded.”
“I’m still just an eighteen year old from Bergen in Norway,” Walker told Genius. Until “Faded” blew up, he was “more concerned about [his] homework and lack of focus in studies than on having a song that was topping the charts in many territories.”
I’m just really humble and grateful for the response and feedback this track has gotten. Unimaginable, if that’s possible to say. Just unreal!
