Armin announces 5th artist album ‘Intense’

On May 3rd, Armin van Buuren will release his highly anticipated new artist album, titled Intense. He announced the follow-up to his successful 2010 ‘Mirage’ album tonight, during his A State of Trance radio show. ‘Intense’ is an album more diverse than any of Armin’s previous albums, crossing over from progressive and trance to classic and rock.

Armin van Buuren:”It’s been an intense 2 years in the making. Being a perfectionist, some of these tracks have taken me months to finish. I’ve tried to incorporate as many real instruments as possible, including a live orchestra and the rock band of my brother Eller, Bagga Bownz. It’s been an honour to work with such talented artists, singers and songwriters.”

Little by little, Armin reveals the artwork of his brand new album, out on May 3rd. Keep an eye on Armin’s social media… because it’s only going to get more Intense! The tracklist of the album, as well as artists who Armin collaborated with, will be revealed soon.

‘Intense’ will be released on Armada Music on Friday May 3rd.
