Moments is the second full-length studio album from the internationally recognized electronic dance music DJ and producer, Andrew Rayel. The first single from the album is out now and it’s titled, Andrew Rayel featuring Eric Lumiere, “I’ll Be There.”
Unstoppable. Ferocious. Magical. The live DJ-performances of Andrew Rayel are an art form and all the world’s a stage. Rayel’s ever-expanding legions of admirers have been clamoring for his next full-length studio album since 2014’s Find Your Harmony. After a three year period of nonstop touring and stints of intense focus in the recording studio, Rayel is ready to release his second studio album, Moments (Armada) on May 5th, accompanied by a world tour. The first single from the album is out now and it’s titled, Andrew Rayel featuring Eric Lumiere, “I’ll Be There.”
From the angelic vocals of Emma Hewitt (“My Reflection”) and Christina Novelli (“Lighthouse”) to the swirling thrust of Max Vangeli (“Heavy Love”) and KhoMha (“All Systems Down”), Rayel harnesses his music’s forward propulsion to get at the core of emotion that ties this album together. Add vocal contributions from Johnathan Mendelsohn (“Forgiven,” “Home”) and Eric Lumiere (“I’ll Be There”) and the album is as well-suited for singing along to as it is for dancing. The first single from the album is “I’ll Be There” featuring Eric Lumiere, a piano-laden number with reverberating bassline and a bouncy beat that drives the song forward.
The North American leg of the Moments tour kicks-off at Ultra Music Festival in Miami on March 26th on the ‘A State of Trance’ (ASOT) stage. The tour features headlining DJ-performances at leading concert arenas, music festivals and nightclub venues from coast-to-coast with the first tour dates recently revealed via Andrew Rayel’s social media.
