Title: All Around The World (Alan Walker Remix)
Label: Virgin Records/Universal Music
R3HAB recruits his fellow heavyweight Alan Walker for a remix of his iconic hit “All Around The World” with A Touch Of Class from 2019, which remains R3HAB‘s most streamed and most certified release to date. It’s a tough act to follow, but the one and only Alan Walker puts a fresh spin on it. Walker honors the original’s disco influence and layers in some groovy, euphoric melodies and an energetic breakdown. “All Around The World” first became a hit with A Touch of Class‘s release in 2000, and with the return of everything early-aughts, this is the perfect time for a revival so that the hit can rule clubs and festivals around the world (literally) once again. It’s out on Virgin Records/Universal Music and celebrates half a billion streams of the original version on Spotify alone, with 30 platinum certifications globally and a brand new gold plaque in the US, confirmed a few days ago. Read below what R3HAB and Alan had to say about the opportunity to remix the track:
“My single ‘All Around The World‘ recently racked up half a billion streams on Spotify. This is an incredible milestone in my career, and I’m extremely grateful. To celebrate, I’ve asked Alan Walker to work on a new version. Alan is a pioneer, and I’m glad that I trusted him with this as he came up with a refreshing and surprising take. I hope both our fans will like this new approach and will celebrate with us all around the world.” – R3HAB
“When R3HAB asked me to make a remix of this classic, I had to jump on it. I hope my remix gets the Walkers around the world in a party mood, and create new amazing memories on it.” – Alan Walker
