Despite the hectic tour schedule, his weekly A State Of Trance radio show and all preparations for his unique Gaia show during Amsterdam Dance Event next week, Armin van Buuren hasn’t been sitting still in the studio. Today, the Grammy-nominated, globally renowned artist unleashed a brand-new single called ‘Wild Wild Son’, released on Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music.

Armin van Buuren: “Many people ask me what songs of mine I’m most proud of. All tracks are my babies, but some tracks I just have more of a connection with, simply because of the time I spent on it or the emotion attached to it. In this case, ‘Wild Wild Son’ is about Sam Martin’s (then unborn) son. I fell so much in love with the song because I recognize the love I feel for my own son. I also really went the extra mile with the production, recording real drums (Koen) and real strings. It was almost a year in the making. It’s a little different from my previous work and a big step for me personally.”

Helmed by sublime piano chords and wonderful, guiding vocals, ‘Wild Wild Son’ sees Armin van Buuren go down the cross-genre road to come up with an absolute masterpiece. Moving, hopeful and honest, it features the vocals of singer-songwriter Sam Martin, who worked with David Guetta on international hits such as ‘Dangerous’ and ‘Lovers On The Sun’. The release of the single, which coincides with the launch of a phenomenal official music video, also bears an empowering message; the song was written by Sam Martin as a message to his unborn son, encouraging him to follow his heart and dreams, and run free.

Lyrics:

Hello son you’re ready to come into the air
We can’t wait to hold you and rock you to sleep in your rocking chair
Before you know it you’ll be standing
Crashing round the house like bandits
All day
You can’t get into too much trouble
Nothing’s going stop me from loving you always

My Wild Wild Son run free
You’ll know it when you’re where you’re supposed to be
My Wild Wild Son run free
You’ll know it when you’re living out your dream

Someday when you leave the house and the open road calls
Just know your heart won’t lie to you if you learn to listen close
When you meet your queen go get her
Make sure she knows you’ll love her always
Before you know it your own child’s standing
You can crash around with them like bandits all day

My Wild Wild Son run free
You’ll know it when you’re where you’re supposed to be
My Wild Wild Son run free
You’ll know it when you’re living out your dream
