Armin van Buuren & Duncan Laurence Urge Listeners to “Feel Something”



Over the past few years, Armin van Buuren has worked on a handful of unexpected collaborations. Today, he has released yet another with fellow Dutch singer-songwriter, Duncan Laurence titled “Feel Something” out now on Armada Music. This brand new pop-dance track will no doubt become a memorable tune for listeners worldwide.

“Feel Something” brings on a whole mood that many fans resonate with. Whether it’s because of a lost love or unprecedented times, this uplifting tune can certainly relate to the many emotions we all have experienced or are currently experiencing. The melancholy vocals from Duncan laid on top of Armin’s electrifying instrumental that beams with stabbing synths, is sure to make anyone feel euphoric and truly “feel something.”

“Whenever I’m writing a song, I try to draw from the most recognizable life-altering events around me and find the little things that suddenly feel so different because of it. The vacant chair on the other side of the kitchen table, the empty half of a double bed, that kind of stuff. Even though it hurts, it’s also a memory of something beautiful. And that’s what ‘Feel Something’ is about. I wrote it together with Leland (Brett McLaughlin, known for songs from the likes of Troye Sivan and Selena Gomez), and it’s about rather feeling something than nothing at all, even though it may cause that gut-wrenching feeling in the pit of the stomach or a tear on the cheek. At least you ‘Feel Something.’ I’m very happy that the message of this song gets to see the light of day, and I am super proud that I got to do this with someone like Armin.” – Duncan Laurence

“I always feel blessed working with very talented singer-songwriters. Not only because they love music just as much as I do, but also because it reminds me that I am so lucky to be able to create music with other people and do this for a living. If you’ve ever heard Duncan Laurence perform live: that voice… what a gift! Working together with him was an absolute blessing and I am very proud of the result. It’s fresh and new, and we put a lot of love in it. We intended to let listeners ‘Feel Something’, and that’s exactly what this record does.” – Armin van Buuren

This surprise collaboration with Duncan Laurence is sure to be a fan favorite, and Duncan has certainly been enjoying his exponential rise to stardom ever since he won the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with “Arcade.” That marked the Dutch singer-songwriter’s breakthrough, and it saw him amass over 300 million streams to date. Just like Armin, he has many big projects in the works for his fans coming soon.

Rising DJ, producer, and content creator, Ciara Graves, has been a dedicated Writer & Editor for The Nocturnal Times while simultaneously crafting her most electrifying projects yet. Having originally produced under the alias Graveheart for a few years, she is now working towards taking a more sophisticated approach with her music by focusing on the meaningful connection between the visual and auditory realms. Ciara studied Music Production & Recording Arts at Elon University '20 and completed Icon Collective's online music production program in Spring '21.
