Dutch DJ/producer Avalon announced the release of a brand-new track titled, “World We Know” which is currently available to stream at the following link.
The track, which recently saw its premiere at the opening of the 2020 Amsterdam Music Festival, was inspired by Avalon in the midst of challenging times when the global pandemic hit. The track was created to describe the feeling of being quarantined and the lack of freedom that the world was faced to confront. Avalon performed the track to an empty Johan Cruijff ArenA in a live-stream during the reveal of DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ poll that garnered seven million spectators worldwide.
The Festival Mix (Official AMF 2020 Anthem) will be available worldwide on November 20.
Valentijn Hoogwerf, better known by his stage name Avalan, is a Dutch DJ, producer, and vocalist. The artist emerged onto the scene in 2018 at Amsterdam Music Festival with an impressive live set. The artist then went on to collaborate with Armin van Burren on the worldwide hit track, “Sucker for Love” in 2019. The track has since been featured on van Buuren’s most recent album, Balance, and became such a huge hit that Avalon went on tour alongside van Buuren right before the pandemic hit.
