The release of “Strong Ones” had originally been scheduled for 23rd October, but the single quickly became in high demand due to simultaneous nation-wide radio premieres in the US (Sirius XM, Evolution/iHeartRadio) and The Netherlands (Radio 538) on October 15th.
Fueling the widespread enthusiasm amongst Armin’s fans even further, the teaser of the forthcoming official music video of “Strong Ones’” was launched later that day, merely a few hours after the radio premieres.
On the same day, Armin van Buuren was handed the first physical copy of his “Embrace” album by fly board pilot Bo Krook, after a stunning performance on the Amsterdam canals.
As it happened, it was the kick-start of a day filled with radio appearances and single premieres for the renowned electronic music artist, all leading to the ahead-of-schedule release of “Strong Ones”.
