Ansel Elgort, best-known for his roles in the Hollywood blockbusters The Fault In Our Stars and the Divergent series, is launching his music career.
After making waves as a DJ, songwriter and producer performing at EDM festivals Ultra and Electric Zoo, Ansel has picked up supporters such as DNCE, Tiesto, Afrojack and Hardwell.
Ansel’s new single is Thief and he wrote and produced the track. His brother Warren directed the music video, which features Ansel’s real-life girlfriend Violetta Komyshan.
The video is a steamy affair with Ansel getting hot and heavy with Violetta in the bedroom and in the bath.
Since its release, Thief has trended at number 1 on iTunes and Apple Music in the US. It has been added to New Music Friday US, Germany, Denmark, and Indonesia.
Thief is the follow-up to Ansel’s debut release Home Alone, which amassed over 6.8 million Spotify streams.
