It stands to reason that no upcoming trance album will be quite as highly anticipated as Armin Van Buuren‘s Embrace – not only because the A State of Trance founder is the foremost international authority on the genre, but also because he’s already hyped up the album’s featured artists to a significant extent.
After allowing a couple of tracks from the effort to reach the masses, the Dutchman has gone ahead and shared what his true fans have been waiting for: the first and title track, “Embrace.”
Hearing this song will immediately stoke any Armin Van Buuren fan’s excitement for what his latest stylistic fusion has yielded. A meandering trumpet solo by Eric Vloeimans leads into an invigorating synth melody that taps into much more of the “pure trance” style than a lot of Van Buuren’s recent releases do.
After this brief taste of what Embrace has to offer, the listener is left wanting more, and with the vast majority of the songs on the effort still unreleased, there will certainly be uncharted territory to explore come October 30th.
Nonetheless, in the month leading up to Embrace‘s release, Armin Van Buuren will undoubtedly release a handful of tracks to keep people interested, so check back with us for more music as he makes it available.
