At the age of 53, Tiësto's hunger for innovation has never been stronger.
The Dutch dance music icon has announced Drive, his seventh studio album. Scheduled to release on February 24th, 2023, the LP will feature 12 tracks, according to its pre-release page on Apple Music. It'll include a handful of Tiësto's recent hit singles, including "Hot In It" (with Charli XCX) and "The Motto" (with Ava Max).
Tiësto opened up about the album back in July, describing it as a "complete new direction" and saying it'll heavily embrace house music. So fans hoping for a return to form—à la 2005's influential trance classic "Adagio for Strings"—will have to hold their breath for now.
