Finnish trance legend Darude is a name that will instantly be familiar to dance music fans of all tastes and ages. His influence is such that he can even convince YouTube to pull a prank surrounding his name for April Fools, and now he’s back with some new music.
Beautiful Alien, the first single from his as-yet-untitled fourth studio album, is an infectious mix of modern trance and elements of the ravey style he originally became famous for. Featuring vocals from AI AM, it’s a track built around something all Darude productions have in common–a hook that will get in your head and stay there. The video features footage from his recent special guest headline slots at Austrlia’s Future Music Festival and shows just how big a crowd Darude draws.
Beautiful Alien is already out in Australia, New Zealand, and Scandinavia, where it hit #1 on the iTunes dance chart in Darude’s native Finland. The global release is on April 10, so keep your ears peeled for what promises to be a smash.
