Armin van Buuren told us that he wanted to embrace different styles of music with his latest album, and no track better exemplifies that than “Heading Up High”. Armin teams up with Dutch rock band Kensington to channel that 90s-era alt rock sound and mix it with the soaring synthwork of dance music. Now, “Heading Up High” is getting its official single release and music video treatment.
For the music video, Armin shoots it at a historic prison in Breda in The Netherlands (the hometown of many famous Dutch DJs). The video depicts a group of prisoners trying to climb up a winding rope to escape from the prison, and you might notice that among them is Breda hometown hero Hardwell. The backdrop creates an impressive environment for the video and reminds you that this is no ordinary dance music collaboration. You can check out the video above and pick up your copy here.
