Tiësto has officially released his long-awaited album, Drive – the crowning achievement that celebrates the latest period of Tiësto’s career. Drive is Tiësto’s first conceptual album since Kaleidoscope in 2009.
“I am so beyond excited for this project to be out in the world!” said Tiësto. “This album is something anyone can enjoy on the dancefloor, in the gym, on a car ride, anywhere or anytime you are looking for incredible sonics and energy. Seeing how much everyone is loving the string of singles has been incredible, and it was amazing putting the full album all together.”
DRIVE‘s visual component paying homage to his life-long fascination of Formula 1 racing. The art is inspired by the 2004 Monaco Grand Prix, where a $430,000 diamond affixed to the front of a racecar disappeared forever.
Drive showcases the sound that’s become Tiësto’s signature. Lead single “The Business” has already amassed over 1.7 billion streams worldwide, and the album features even more hits. Named for the perpetual momentum of his creative calling and the physical movement his work continues to inspire, the album also includes multi-million streaming worldwide hit singles ‘Don’t Be Shy’ with Karol G, ‘The Motto’ with Ava Max, ‘Hot In It’ with Charli XCX), ’10:35′ with Tate McRae and recent drop ‘All Nighter’ which together have a combination of over 4.4 billion global streams.
DRIVE really encapsulates Tiësto’s commercial dance sound. Tiesto’s new commercial dance sound is characterized by a fusion of various EDM sub-genres with pop sensibilities, resulting in accessible and catchy tracks that are suitable for mainstream audiences and club-goers alike thanks to the catchy melodies, upbeat rhythms, and sing-along lyrics.
