In a collaborative triumph, multi-platinum artists Afrojack and R3HAB – two of the Netherlands’ foremost electronic music giants – have joined forces for their ultimate super-collab “Worlds On Fire,” released through Tomorrowland Music.
It comes in the shape of an uplifting festival anthem, exuding energy and passion with an ecstatic drop and vocals by singer/songwriter Au/Ra. “Worlds On Fire” is Afrojack’s and R3HAB’s first new official record together in over a decade. With hundreds of millions of plays between the two of them, the Dutch duo and two of the genre’s biggest hitmakers have created yet another dance anthem designed to ignite crowds around the world.
“Worlds On Fire” is part of a collection of exclusive festival releases by Tomorrowland Music under this year’s festival theme “The Reflection of Love,” celebrating the return of Tomorrowland after three years by gathering some of the biggest artists in electronic music on Tomorrowland’s record imprint. The release of “Worlds On Fire” is accompanied by Afrojack and R3HAB’s exclusive b2b set at Tomorrowland’s iconic Mainstage during the first festival weekend.
“I’m very happy to release this exclusive festival release for Tomorrowland, celebrating the festival’s return after three years! It’s great to be working with R3HAB again, after starting together at WALL, playing many shows together, and now with an exclusive b2b performance at the iconic Mainstage of Tomorrowland. I’m excited to release the first collab in more than 10 years between R3HAB and myself!” – Afrojack
“Afrojack and I have been working together since he invited me into his label over a decade ago when we released ‘Prutataaa’. We’ve released a string of remixes for each other later but haven’t created a record together since 2011. That changes today. Afrojack is massively talented, and I’m grateful for his guidance and friendship, from our early days in his first studio to the beautiful stages we’ve shared around the world today. It’s also been a pleasure working with Au/Ra and her incredible voice. We’re glad to have her on with us.” – R3HAB
“I wrote this song at a time when so many destructive things were happening in our world, it was overwhelming. But I had this deep sense that no matter what, there are people I love who make this crazy place better. I’ll always be there for them, and they’ll always be there for me, no matter how insane things get.” – Au/Ra
