Hardwell might’ve taken a break from performing at any countdown celebrations earlier this week, but he did tease new music, a track titled “Being Alive.”
Set to drop tomorrow, the track is the follow-up to 2012’s “Apollo,” one of the Dutch DJ’s biggest hits. From the sound of the brief teaser posted on his Instagram, “Being Alive” seems to have taken everything that was great about “Apollo,” and dialed it up to 11. A heartfelt female voice delivers a soaring hook over progressive house chords, with the big room influences set on overdrive.
The snippet also includes footage from one of Hardwell’s massive live shows, where he first debuted the new track. “After six years, I’m finally going to play the follow-up to ‘Apollo’! Are you guys ready?” the DJ asks in the clip.
Well, are you? Because we know we can’t wait for Friday already.
