If you checked out the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs livestream during ADE a few weeks back, you would have seen Hardwell performing his new single “Dare You” live with vocalist Matthew Koma. This is the track that Shazam ended up premiering yesterday, and today we get a preview of the track alongside footage from Hardwell’s ADE set. It looks like some of the early thoughts on this one is that it isn’t what people expected; possibly more trance than the big room they wanted? As if someone who’s been designated the #1 DJ in the world would go back to making more underground crushers.
This looks to be one of Hardwell’s bigger breaks’ Pete Tong is set to premiere the single on Radio 1 tonight, and Beatport will be releasing it on November 13 before the iTunes release on November 15. Interestingly enough, it looks like this single will be released via Sony / Relentless on January 6, 2014. If Hardwell is indeed working on a new album, could Sony be releasing it? Time will tell.
