Armin Van Buuren's New Album 'Mirage' Out Today!

Chicago, IL (Top40 Charts/ Ultra Records) - Armin van Buuren's highly anticipated fourth artist album Mirage dropped today, but pre-orders have already brought the album into the US iTunes Top 10 Dance Albums chart. This is the album that dance fans have been waiting for: it's his most diverse yet, rich with live-recorded instrumentals and featuring collaborations with Ferry Corsten, BT, and Josh Gabriel, along with the talents of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Nadia Ali, Guy Chambers, Christian Burns and Adam Young of Owl City.

Mirage is filled with musical fusions and surprising interpretations, from the orchestral masterpiece of title track 'Mirage', the deep trance track 'I Don't Own You' and housey 'Feels So Good' to the eerie 'Take A Moment' and feel-good 'Drowning.' These 16 tracks highlight how Armin has matured as an artist. 'I wanted to expand myself musically,' Armin says. 'My main sound will always be trance, but I've been having a lot more fun by doing things differently. For example, I worked with Guy Chambers, the man behind Robbie Williams, and he taught me a lot about songwriting just sitting down with a cup of tea, a guitar and a piece of paper. That really inspired me.'

Armin recently returned to headline the sold-out second night of Electric Zoo, New York's electronic music festival, playing tracks from Mirage to over 25,000 enthusiastically receptive fans. Jon Pareles from the New York Times, said of his performance: 'Mr. van Buuren has become one of the world's most popular D.J.'s with a particularly triumphal version of trance, infused with the bombast of European classical music: marchlike beats, swelling (synthetic) orchestral chords, arpeggiated melodies and, at times, quasi-operatic chorales.'

This month, Armin launched his Sirius XM Radio takeover with 'A State of Sundays.' A State of Sundays is a brand new concept: a weekly 24 hour radio day featuring Armin's critically acclaimed and award-winning 'A State of Trance' radio show, along with an exclusive hour with his personal collection, ranging from trance to progressive, house and down-tempo electronic music. The show will also include a 'Favorite Future DJ' segment and special DJ sets by the likes of Markus Schulz, Dash Berlin, John O'Callaghan, Andy Moor, Ashley Wallbridge and W&W.
