Hardwell's historic return to Tomorrowland has come and gone, but its legacy is only just beginning.

His performance was nothing short of breathtaking, an electrifying display of his new musical direction after a four-year hiatus from the electronic dance music festival scene. Tomorrowland was coincidentally the last major fest Hardwell performed at prior to his shocking retirement in 2018.

But it was one track that has the Hardwell hive mind buzzing with anticipation as the Dutch icon gears up for his long-awaited comeback album, REBELS NEVER DIE. Towards the end of his set, he dropped an unreleased song, tentatively titled "Revolution," that has all the intoxicating qualities of a classic Hardwell anthem.

Hardwell invited his collaborators, Timmy Trumpet and Maddix, onto the Mainstage to drop the trance music-influenced bomb and send the Tomorrowland faithful into a frenzy.

"Put those hands up, and let's start a revolution," Hardwell chanted before unleashing the track.
