Following months of anticipation, the release of Armin van Buuren’s fifth artist album ‘Intense’ arrived in May to rave reviews.

His most diverse work yet, the sixteen tracks that feature on the album run the gamut of Armin’s influences, incorporating an array of sounds from progressive and trance to classic, and even rock. The undeniably anthemic lead single ‘This Is What It Feels Like’ featuring Trevor Guthrie spent three weeks in the top 10 in the UK, going silver with over 250k units sold to date and amassing over 8 million views of the video, and now van Buren is ready to unleash the second single from the chart-topping album.

Due for release on 23rd September, ‘Beautiful Life’ featuring French singer Cindy Alma is a clear choice as the next single. Driven by sharp beats, delicate arpeggios and lush synth work, Alma’s sublime vocals soar through van Buuren’s huge progressive production to make a sure fire festival anthem.

Armin van Buuren has been named No. 1 in the prestigious DJ MAG Top 100 poll five times in the last six years. It is an indication of his prolific output over more than 15 years that he’s been DJing and producing. The Dutchman discovered a passion for dance music by listening to mix-tapes and radio shows, and then taught himself how to create his own. 12 years later, his very own radio show ‘A State of Trance’ has grown to legendary heights. Nowadays, 20 million listeners tune into his 2-hour selection of music every week.
