DJ luminary Hardwell is not one for resting on his laurels despite an undeniably successful career as a global crowd shaker. At the recent Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) the Dutch icon premiered a new single ‘Dare You’ alongside American songsmith Matthew Koma during a sold-out edition of Hardwell Presents Revealed.[one_half last=”no”]
Now comes the official release of the single.
The highly awaited vocal offering follows on Hardwell’s hot festival fire starter ‘Never Say Goodbye’ – a collaboration with Revealed Recordings artist Dyro and Bright Lights (aka Heather Bright). ‘Dare You’ sees a new melodically refined direction that flaunts Hardwell’s peak time aptitude. Koma’s on-point songwriting marks an unsuspecting yet spectacular display of radio-friendly club fuel.
Moreover, Hardwell is proud to announce a “forward-thinking partnership” with the world leading media company, Shazam, in what is the first time an artist has ever released music through the Shazam network. Premiering ‘Dare You’ via intuitive fingerprinting technology, the format for this exclusive deal is music fans are being asked to Shazam a 20 second clip which has been posted on Hardwell’s official YouTube page which will then unlock the full song within the Shazam app. With over 375 million people in 200 countries worldwide the deal is no doubt a beneficial one – not to mention an approach offering fans a new way to discover, explore, buy and share Hardwell’s music.[/one_half] [one_half last=”yes”]
The single will receive an exclusive release on Beatport via Revealed Recording today followed by a worldwide release November 15th on iTunes. The UK pre-order shop sale starts November 13th with its official release January 6th 2014 on Sony Music / Relentless.
