Following the release of his fourth album Kaleidoscope, Tiësto brings his retina scorching live show to seven venues across the UK in March 2010. Tiësto releases the stunning new single Who Wants To Be Alone featuring global superstar Nelly Furtado on 8th March, the third single to be taken from his fourth studio album Kaleidoscope. Bringing together two of the most talented and enduring recording artists in the world from two very different genres can be precarious and exciting in equal measure. But when you consider that Tiësto and Nelly have always been pushing the boundaries of what pop and dance music can be, it’s no surprise that Who Wants To Be Alone is a sultry exercise in assured and life affirming electronic pop music.
Furthermore, to coincide with this release Tiësto will be bringing his spectacular Kaleidoscope tour to the UK, promising to be one of the most extravagant tours that the UK has ever seen.
These shows are no-holds-barred, off the wall productions hosted by the world’s premiere electronic artist. In fact, they don’t exceed expectations so much as blow them wide open.
If he wasn't busy enough, Tiesto has also just launched a new innovative platform which is a new members-only fansite, In The Booth!. This site gives fans the ability to interact directly with Tiesto, while providing HD streaming concerts, behind-the-scenes footage, exclusive content and more. It means fans from all over the world will now see a side of Tijs they haven't been able to before and have instant access to live performances, debuts of new 'white label' tracks, back catalogues, tour blogs, pre-sale tickets and to interact / chat with Tiesto himself.
When Nelly Furtado attended the Miami Winter Music Conference in 2008 with her producer Timbaland she was so blown away by Tiësto’s performance that she instantly agreed to record a track with him. On Tiësto, Furtado says, “"Tiësto’s charm and brilliance goes way beyond dance music. His live shows have an ability to initiate the sublime. He manages to create compassionate soundscapes that instigate the body to move and the heart to feel-a hybrid only Tiësto, with all of his inner radiance, could manage.” Shortly there after, Nelly sent Tiësto a demo of a song that would become the first massive pop-dance crossover record of 2010, Who Wants To Be Alone "is about not wanting a magical evening out to ever end."
Indeed, Nelly and Tijs are no strangers to mixing it up: Take Tiësto’s latest long player Kaleidoscope: It features collaborations with some of the most credible names in Indie (Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Emily Haines from Metric) Dance (Calvin Harris), Pop (Tegan and Sara) and Jónsi from Icelandic post rock outfit Sigur Rós. Nelly’s career, meanwhile, has seen her experiment with genres, sounds and languages, from her hip hop roots to her Portuguese language records to her RnB smash ‘Maneater’, all the while evolving into the multi Grammy award winning, multi million album-selling (22 million and counting) and multi talented global super star she is today!
