The 2023 rendition of ‘Loneliness’ promises to seamlessly blend Hardwell‘s signature mainstage sound with DJs From Mars‘ electrifying mash-up energy, while retaining the high-octane grooves that made Tomcraft the original mastermind behind ‘Loneliness.’
By merging their unique styles, this revamped version aims to reignite the spirit that made ‘Loneliness’ an anthem of its time while delivering a sound that appeals to both seasoned dance music enthusiasts and a new generation of listeners. Leading up to the release date, Hardwell gave the single its world premiere on his newly launched radio show, Hardwell On Air, adding to the anticipation for this fresh take on a track that has indelibly marked the global dance music landscape over the past two decades.
Discussing the collaboration, the dance music pioneer Hardwell commented, “Reviving a classic like ‘Loneliness,’ beloved by so many fans, is always an exciting journey. The result of this new perspective on the track is a fantastic fusion of our styles, and I can’t wait for our fans to experience it on the dancefloor. I’m sure they’ll love it!”

Collaborating with Hardwell is an honor, as he’s one of the biggest DJs in the world and has been an inspiration for us since day one.
