After torpedoing a four-year hiatus, it's clear that Hardwell wants to make a statement with each new release.

His latest is "F*CKING SOCIETY," a menacing future rave anthem that arrived today by way of his Revealed Recordings imprint. Following the release of his two comeback tracks, "BROKEN MIRROR" and "INTO THE UNKNOWN," the exhilarating single is the most compelling example of Hardwell's new, cerebral direction so far.

The lyrics of "F*CKING SOCIETY" are existentialist in nature, exploring our tendency as humans to willingly ignore the notion that we are merely cogs in the machine. A guttural voice conveys Hardwell's message loud and clear: "They know our bullshit in the fucking society / Besides saying nothing, keeping calm for eternity / They sell out their soul in search for publicity / And keep on ignoring the shaking reality."

Check out the official "F*CKING SOCIETY" music video below.
