That subtle house thump. That radio-ready vocal. Those light guitar strums. No, this isn’t Avicii’s “Wake Me Up.” Nor is it Afrojack’s “The Spark.” No, this is the latest cut from Tiesto, “Red Lights.” Hearing this new track let’s you know exactly why Universal snapped Tiesto up. It works perfect for them, as this is the kind of instantly-impacting radio single that EDM needs to further permeate the mainstream, and his name is large enough that it might end up doing more for them than a “new” name. This track is set to drop on December 17 in America, while it won’t be out in the UK until February 23, 2014. EDIT Tiesto’s “Red Lights” is out now.
