Adding to van Buuren’s extensive catalog of releases, “Need You Now” shows just how turbulent a love-stricken mind can be. Featuring the dynamic vocals and relatable lyrics of fellow Dutchman Jake Reese at its backdrop, the track’s house-tinged beats, and effervescent piano chords make for a multi-purpose listening experience for all dance music fans to enjoy.
“You don’t always know when the inspiration for a song may come, but it struck me full force when I heard Jake Reese’s vocals and lyrics for this single. I love how the story hits home so strongly and got lost in the vocal melody right away. It helped the track come alive very organically and I am very pleased with how it turned out. It’s another tune about love, because I know that’s precisely what you guys need!”– Armin van Buuren
This track adds to the many announcements and accomplishments van Buuren has recently had this year. The artist most recently celebrated his 1000th episode of A State of Trance with a special back-to-back set with fellow Founder, Ferry Corsten.
