Armin van Buuren has released a new track that is nearly unrecognizable coming from the venerate trance and progressive producer. Titled “Lonely For You,” the song taps into an elaborate drum line with a faint drum n’ bass-inspired vibe that adds a unique compliment to poppy vocals, delivered by Bonnie McKee.
The producer speaks about his newest track in an official release, stating,
“’Lonely For You’ was written with the lovely Bonnie McKee. For me, it resembles the struggles we all face with and in relationships, ups and downs. I think it was appropriate to release it around Valentine’s Day!”
The track tells the story of getting over a relationship that has ended, and the moments of feeling alone even though the breakup was the right decision. “Lonely For You” has fittingly been released in conjunction with Valentine’s Day, and the accompanying music video features both Armin van Buuren and McKee dispersed throughout the visual narrative of a break up. “Lonely For You” is a worthy complement to the “Wild Wild Son” producer’s growing list of increasingly diverse releases, and if the Armada figurehead is actually on a mission to prove that he can produce a hit in every genre, he is certainly checking off new boxes with his work on “Lonely For You.”
