Armin’s new music video depicts a crowd of inmates trying to escape a dome-shaped prison

Armin’s new single “Heading Up High” is out now, accompanied by a music video that is premiered worldwide on MTV for an exclusive 24-hour window.

“Heading Up High” is yet the most infectious cut from Embrace and it set the Netherlands on fire when it shot straight to A-rotation at Dutch FM.  For “Heading Up High,” Van Buuren chose to work with the popular Dutch rock band Kensington in yet another example of Embrace‘s musical openness with instrumentation and styles. There is a magical space where electronic dance music meets monster rock ‘n roll and Van Buuren and Kensington were able to find that phenomenal place.

The music video of “Heading Up High” depicts a crowd of inmates trying to escape a dome-shaped prison by heading up high through the roof. Among this group of prisoners is Hardwell, trying to soar to freedom alongside his fellow convicts, guided by the inspiring lyrics, rock-solid sounds and sturdy beats of Van Buuren and Kensington.

The new single is vibrant and dynamic with all the rock ‘n roll charisma that Kensington brings. It’s got a power-ballad pull that grabs the listener while delivering inspirational lyrics.  is sure to be a festival favorite for summer 2016.
