Hardwell has teamed up with producer Azteck and vocalist Alex Hepburn for a new single, 'Anybody Out There'.
Out now, the track takes cues from Hardwell's recent tougher sound, combining it with Hepburn's pop vocals. You can listen to the new cut below.
Speaking about the track, Hardwell said: "Azteck and I have known each other for a while, having previously worked together on music. As his recent run of form proves, he's a great producer with a fantastic ear for a topline. So, I knew a big vocal collab with Azteck would be a fire release for the summer. But the track needed a specific type of voice to make it work, and the unique raspy quality of Alex's voice made her the perfect fit for the distorted topline on 'Anybody Out There'.
"This track is special to me because I'd been longing to repurpose my new style into a vocal-driven anthem that blended other elements of my sound to create a sort of hybrid track. It needed the right emotion in the track, the right chords, and perfect balance in arrangement to fit the current sound."
In April, Hardwell remixed Calvin Harris' collaboration with Ellie Goulding, 'Miracle'.
He returned from a four-year hiatus in 2022 with the album 'Rebels Never Die', which was released in September of that year via his own Revealed Recordings.
