The 14-track release on revived legendary label Casablanca will be Tiesto’s fifth artist album, and his first since 2009’s Kaleidoscope.
“So much has happened for dance music in such a short amount of time so it now seems like the perfect time for me to revisit the idea of an artist album,” the DJ/producer told Rolling Stone, adding that A Town Called Paradise is heavily influenced by Las Vegas, where he currently holds down multiple residencies.
The album is also home to Tiesto’s latest single “Wasted”, a collaboration with Matthew Koma that now has its own music video. Like his last clip, “Red Lights“, the new video plays on Americana imagery, this time featuring a gaggle of 1950s-styled housewives having a raucous daytime party complete with cake fights before settling in to watch a Tiesto-hosted TV show.
Tiesto was recently announced among the headliners of this year’s TomorrowWorld EDM festival in Chattahoochee Hills, GA, just south of Atlanta.
