Alan Walker is no stranger to YouTube success. One of his greatest tracks, “Faded,” is currently the 25th most-viewed video on YouTube of all time and is one of less than 30 music videos in YouTube history to reach 2 billion views. In addition, Walker’s official artist channel has over 19.8M subscribers, making him the top 20 most-subscribed artists on YouTube. Since the start of 2018, Alan Walker has amassed over 2.7 billion views, making him one of the top 50 most-viewed artists in the world on YouTube this year.
Continuing his explosive career with YT, the superstar producer has partnered with YouTube Music to present We Are Walkers, the latest in an ongoing series of Artist Spotlight Stories and the FIRST to be available as multiple episodes.

Each episode of the series features a different Alan Walker fan, known as Walkers, and showcases the connection between these fans established by his positive message to create and evolve culture. In the first episode, Walker says, “My story began right here on YouTube. This is a place for exploration and creation. Our voices here are equal in ways they aren’t in our society.” Produced by YT Music, “We Are Walkers” profiles his Walkers as they create, connect, and share through YouTube while remaining completely anonymous to one another. An inspiring testament to Walker’s influence and the growing Walker community he has built around the world, the series will unmask these artists and highlight their unique connection to Alan and to other Walkers through sharing their stories.
