After teasing “something big” earlier this week via Twitter, Tiësto (real name Tijs Michiel Verwest) has signed an exclusive worldwide recording deal with Atlantic Records. The agreement’s terms were not disclosed, but the legendary Dutch dance music artist will release the first single on September 25, 2020.
The Business marks Tiësto’s first commercial release since his seventh studio album The London Sessions. Released earlier this year, the LP includes the single Jackie Chan. Along with Tiësto, the song features Dzeko, Preme, Post Malone, and has been streamed 1.5 billion times.
With his new commitment to Atlantic, Tiësto is “poised to once again lead the next evolution of electronic dance music,” reads a press release. Fans of Tiësto can look forward to him “exploring uncharted terrain to create what may well be his biggest and boldest music thus far.”
