Afrojack premieres lead single off his debut album, offers new flavor with ‘The Spark’
Gearing up to release his debut artist album, Afrojack had originally approximated a September release earlier this year. With the month coming to an end in mere hours and that original release date being pushed back by default, he has, however, delivered on his promise with the world premiere of the official first single.
As unveiled by Pete Tong, “The Spark” is distant from the gritty offerings he’s delivered throughout festival season, but also leaps over the boundaries of his pop smash with Chris Brown, “As Your Friend.” The single’s production, while anthemic, isn’t a thumping festival record, but a feel-good radio effort with a flavorful vocal from Spree Wilson that carries commercial electronica with the most unique and refreshing taste since Avicii shook the scene with “Wake Me Up.”
“The Spark” will be released on October 11th, kicking off Afrojack’s album campaign with a strong fourth quarter.
