In celebration of their first-ever collaborative release, the two artists will launch a never-before-seen virtual back-to-back set performance from their own respective studios which will be live-streamed on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. (CEST).

“Nicky Romero and I have known each other for years, so it’s kind of strange that we hadn’t yet made a record together until today, even though he made an amazing remix of my track ‘Unlove You’. But the long wait made it even more fun to finally work on a track together, and I’m very happy with how the record turned out. I am also beyond excited to show you the unique back-2-back set we’ll be doing to celebrate the release of our first-ever collab and I hope it will give everyone the energy they need to hold on until we can throw actual parties again.”

“Armin and I have been close friends for a very long time but never found the right moment to collaborate. This track started months ago, just before quarantine when we were trading ideas for a remix and the original ideas just started flowing naturally. Armin has had a huge impact on me and my musical style and it’s been a lot of fun during this process. I know the fans will love it and I have the feeling this is just the first of many.
