Hardwell isn't wasting any time demonstrating to his legion of supporters that his extended break from performing won't keep him from putting out new music. The Dutch DJ/producer and Revealed Recordings label boss teased "Being Alive" featuring JGUAR two days ago, and now the track sees an official release.

Characterized by the adrenaline-pumping synth work for which Hardwell (real name Robbert van de Corput) garnered worldwide renown, "Being Alive" is a song engineered to move thousands-deep festival crowds. JGUAR's memorable vocal makes for the centerpiece of the concept despite arriving well past the midway point in the arrangement.

Following a career that most EDM DJ/producers could only dream of, van de Corput called it quits last year on the grounds that "being Hardwell 24/7 leaves too little energy, love, creativity, and attention" for him to lead a normal life. He ended his final performance at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam with a tearful speech revealing that he would one day return to the stage.
