Today, April 30th, Grammy Award winning DJ and producer Afrojack, releases his new track ‘HERO’ in collaboration with David Guetta, who has twice been named best DJ in the world by DJ Mag.
The song is co-written by Ellie Goulding, Stargate, Ryan Tedder and Jamie Scott. The vocals are by Luxtides.
‘HERO’ is an inspiring summer song and is a crossover between Pop and EDM. It carries a relevant message; there is a hero in everyone. That the smallest gestures can help and touch others, is what Afrojack and David Guetta want to emphasize with this song.
‘HERO’ is not the first collaboration between Afrojack and David Guetta. Previously, they achieved great success with songs like Titanium, Hey Mama and This One’s for You. That the Grammy-winning duo is still successful is shown by the ever-growing number of streams (5,223,609,321) of their tracks. The cooperation for HERO arose from the long-term friendship between the DJs, and the will to present a summer song with a relevant message in these unpredictable times.
Afrojack about the upcoming release: “Working together with my brother David Guetta is always a pleasure, but it is also an honor to be able to collaborate with all the talented writers on this record: Ellie Goulding, Stargate, Ryan Tedder and Jamie Scott.” He proceeds: “This song is a return to our roots, with big melodies, big vocals, and a big drop. It’s amazing to be able to combine an amazing song with our festival style music.”
David Guetta continues: “Nick and I have been friends for so many years and have worked on some great songs in the past. So it’s great to finally release a record together again. And it’s been a pleasure working with such talented writers.”
