Tiësto releases the infectious guilty pleasure ‘Grapevine’
Tiësto has released his latest single, “Grapevine.” Premiered at Ultra Music Festival earlier this year, the track employs a universally recognizable vocal sample from the prince of soul, Marvin Gaye‘s rendition of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine.” And if the album art is any indication, this one is meant for peak energy festival play.
But “Grapevine” isn’t the one note, main stage-only kind of production one might expect from the Dutch superstar. It pays homage to its main attraction’s soulful roots, seeing Tiësto continue on a venture into deeper territory, moving away from a formulaic structure. Percussion replaces synth progressions, creating an interesting — even surprising — course of development throughout the track. Like Gaye’s original track, this one should be able to attract a wide range of fans.
This single is the Grammy winner’s second original release of 2018, following the single “WOW.”
