Dutch trance powerhouse Tiesto combines rock, trance and vocals on his third album. 'Elements of Life' will be released mid-April.
Tiesto rode to the top of worldwide dance charts with big euphoric trance anthems such as 'Flight 643', 'Suburban Train' and 'Traffic' taken from the albums 'In My Memory' (2001) and 'Just Be' (2004). His latest album 'Elements Of Life' includes more big arpeggiated club tracks, but also more song-based numbers.
"I am very excited about my new album and the new single from the album called 'In The Dark'. It's a very experimental piece of work and combines the style of rock with trance and electronic. This is the first time that I have combined these different genres. I have always liked rock music so it made sense, " says Tiësto.
The new album also features a star-studded line-up of vocalists. BT aka Brian Transeau guests on the love song 'Break My Fall', Julie Thompson sings on 'Can You Feel Me', Jes (the vocalist on Motorcycle's 'As The Rush Comes') stars on 'Everything', and Maxi Jazz from Faithless rhymes on 'Dance4Life', the first single from the album released last year. Current single from the album 'In the Dark' is a vocal collaboration with Christian Burns, who Tiesto met on MySpace.
