Hardwell has unveiled the video to his latest single “Echo”, the second to be taken from his debut artist album “United We Are”, which stormed to the #1 iTunes spot in his native Holland upon release, while also hitting #2 worldwide.
Combining some massive synth hooks, powerful percussion, and the soulful vocals of Jonathan Mendelsohn, “Echo” is a mainstage anthem with something of a dark side. Behind the big hooks and high energy, the lyrics and video portray a heartfelt story of lost love. Set against a beautifully shot winter landscape, the video tells the tale of a widower taking a journey through his past, with a little help from a friend.
It’s a contrast that perfectly illustrates Hardwell’s natural ability to combine meaningful songwriting with dance floor-friendly production.
With the buzz surrounding “United We Are” still rippling across the globe, the Hardwell name is generating more fervor than ever before. Following another successful trip to Miami, which saw him win a total of 5 IDMA Awards, which included “Best Global DJ”, “Best Progressive House/Electro DJ”, “Best Podcast or Radio Mixshow DJ”, “Best Electro/Progressive House Track”, and “Best Album”, and all topped off by a sold out Revealed party at Story and a crowd-melting headline performance at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival.
Hardwell is now set to take his main stage sound to headline slot at Tomorrowland Brazil on 1st May, before hosting his own Revealed arena the following day.
The rest of the summer sees him take his various brands to all four corners of the globe, with his “I AM HARDWELL” tour set to take in Singapore and Bangkok in May, more “Go Hardwell Or Go Home” shows at Las Vegas superclub Hakkasan, and headline slots at EDC NYC, EDC UK, Ultra Europe, Tomorrowland and Creamfields, the latter 2 also playing host to Revealed stages, highlighting the ever-increasing pool of talent on the label. With a packed tour diary and plenty more killer releases due out on Revealed, it looks like being another massive year for Hardwell and his legions of fans.
