Kicking the new year off in spectacular fashion, Armin van Buuren has joined forces with Grammy-winning songwriter and music producer Fernando Garibay for a brand new single called “I Need You”. The track features the compelling vocals of singer Olaf Blackwood and a sound that will exceed every expectation from this massive collaboration.
Van Buuren is carrying his momentum over from an undeniably remarkable 2016 campaign. Recently, the Dutch legend released his psy-trance production titled “Great Spirit” alongside Vini Vici. This particular record effectively showcased Van Buuren’s versatility in music-making, which he has displayed once again with his latest tune. According to Armada Music’s head honcho:
“It’s been truly inspiring to work with Fernando Garibay and Olaf Blackwood and to come up with something so musically adventurous. I am very proud of the result and can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks of ‘I Need You’.”
Joining Van Buuren for this outstanding new record is one of the industry’s most renowned names, Fernando Garibay. The Los Angeles native has helped produce and write numerous worldwide hits in the past, earning him several awards including a Grammy Award in 2010. Throughout his career, Garibay has worked with the likes of U2, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston, and Lady Gaga, and now he switches gears to the dance music world alongside the iconic Armin van Buuren.
“I Need You” opens up with an astonishing chord progression impeccably blended with some soothing melodies. Blackwood’s infectious vocals then enter, as well as the track’s magical deep house elements, which truly provide the audience with a heartwarming listening experience overall. From start to finish, “I Need You” consistently delivers the uplifting sounds Van Buuren has become prominent for and presents a high level of production quality that makes it a must-hear track for anyone.
