Few days ago, this publication highlghted how the legend Armin van Buuren was taking over the electronic music scene making of 2019 his year. Absolute domination by the Trance icon that has been amazingly active and busy. Only this year, he has performed in all of the main EDM festivals in the world, celebrated in style the 900 episode of ASOT in Utrecht, put out his debut album for his Gaia project ‘Moons of Jupiter‘, released tons of great new music and he has now announced ‘Balance‘, his 7th solo studio album.
Armin is determined to finish the year on the top. With ADE in his nearest horizon, he will be stealing the spotlight presenting ‘Balance’, which will be released right after on October 25th. In order to increase the hype around this, the Dutch maestro has given further details about it unveiling the official tracklist to give us an idea of what we can expect from it and no one could be more excited of what’s coming.
With a total number of a staggering 28 songs divided into two sides of 14 songs each, the album showcases the tracks he’s been working on during the last two years and sees a wide variety of styles and melodies within Trance music. From collabs like ‘Don’t Give Up On Me’ or ‘La Résistance De L’Amour’ with rising talents like Lucas & Steve and Shapov to tracks like ‘Show Me Love’ with fellow legendary trio Above & Beyond. From more chilled commercial tracks like ‘Sunny Days’ ‘Wild Wild Son’ ‘I Need You’ ‘Therapy’ or ‘Waking Up With You’ to more energetic ASOT successes like ‘Blah Blah Blah’ or ‘Turn It Up’.

Following the announcement, Armin added:
“I’m so glad I can finally reveal the name and release date of my new album. ‘BALANCE’ is a new chapter in my book of life, the result of venturing into known and unknown territories while finding the balance in between. I can’t wait to share it with you!”
