Hot on the heels of releasing his dreamy Summer Mix 2021 which teased his return to his progressive house roots, Audien unveils with his new single “Wish It Was You” via Armada.
After releasing a handful of dance pop and tropical house tunes earlier this year by way of “Learn To Love Again” and “Blue,” Audien’s newest record marks the Grammy-nominated producer’s homecoming within his progressive house and trance origins.
“Wish It Was You” truly harkens back to the sound Audien first romanced fans with, positioning the American beatmaker to once again take the reins as an unstoppable force leading progressive house sounds into a modernized future.
The tune kicks off with a euphoric synth melody before Cate Downey’s soaring vocals take center stage. As the song progresses, Audien guides listeners into a sunny groove that erupts into a kaleidoscope of beats.
Lyrically, the tune illustrates the sadness of trying to find the one you love within someone else, yet Audien’s galvanizing production work seamlessly makes “Wish It Was You” a certified effervescent anthem.
A staple in the progressive house genre, Audien has more than earned his position as a fixture of the dance community with his penchant for uplifting melodies and a hardwired knack for production.
The American producer garnered unwavering support from industry giants like Tïesto, Above & Beyond, and Armin van Buuren through an array of magnetic productions, including his recent Billboard Dance Radio #1 charting collaboration with ARTY and Ellee Duke called “Craving,” collaborations with the likes of Lady Antebellum, MAX and Echosmith, and official remixes for Michael Jackson, Coldplay and Halsey.
