In what can only be regarded as a truly titanic team-up, Armin van Buuren and Fernando Garibay have exceeded all expectations and then some. The Grammy-nominated Dutchman and the Grammy-winning songwriter and producer joined forces for ‘I Need You’ (feat. Olaf Blackwood), released today on Amsterdam-based record company Armada Music.

To support the release of ‘I Need You’, an eye-popping music video is to hit the world a week from now. The music video, which was shot in L.A., adds to the magic of the song by way of its striking images and humorous take on the superstar lifestyle.
