Hardwell & Amba Shepherd Go Acoustic For ‘Apollo’

At this point, Apollo needs no introduction. Clocking in at #8 on our Top 15 Big Room House Tracks of 2013, the beautiful collab between Hardwell and vocalist Amba Shepherd has warmed the hearts of fans across the world. That said, this brand new acoustic version will have you grabbing for a tissue–sh*t is about to get emotional.

This stripped-down take on Apollo takes Amba Shepherd‘s soulful lyrics and amps up the emotion considerably. Booming synthwork is replaced with haunting piano, bringing Amba’s powerful vocals to the forefront. While the original was a big room masterpiece, the acoustic version conveys powerful feelings of love and togetherness. It is this connection with fans that has helped propel Hardwell to the #1 spot on the DJ Mag Top 100 and made him a brand name in EDM. You can pick up the acoustic version of Apollo on iTunes as part of the official I Am Hardwell soundtrack, taken from the new I Am Hardwell documentary.
