December 14, 2023 – Earlier this month, Audien released ‘One Last Dance (Acoustic Version)’, the 2023 follow up to the Grammy-nominated DJ and producer’s early 2022 hit featuring Australian vocalist XIRA. Today, he unveils the official ‘One Last Dance’ music video as a gesture of gratitude towards his devoted fanbase for their unwavering support through his musical journey.

‘One Last Dance’ is a story of heartbreak, born out of the tough times Audien experienced during the pandemic, and this stripped-down rendition stunningly amplifies the song’s pure, heartfelt emotion. Audien says, “‘One Last Dance’ really warranted an acoustic version. Often demos contain the true magic of the song so to be able to put that out into the world feels like a treat.”

About Audien 

American DJ, record producer, and musician Audien hails from Mystic, Connecticut, to a musical household where his mother is a jazz aficionado. In 2008, he was introduced to electronic dance music through trance songs in video game soundtracks. Fascinated by the sound of trance, he learned to recreate songs from Armin Van Buuren's A State of Trance podcasts. Following the release of his first single "Rise & Shine'' on Ferry Corsten's label Flashover Recordings, Audien continued with a string of releases on Anjunabeats, Armada Music, Spinninʼ Records, and Astralwerks. Since then, Audien has established himself as a fixture in the dance community, known for his production prowess and unique propensity for uplifting melodies. In 2015, Audien signed to Astralwerks and released his debut EP called 'Daydreams' with the track "Rooms". He received a 2015 Grammy Nomination for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical for his remix of the Bastille song, "Pompeii". In March of the same year, Audien released the single "Insomnia", which peaked at number one on the US Dance Charts. His 2015 track "Something Better" featuring Lady A cracked the Billboard Top 40 in Pop Songs — marking Audien's first appearance on a pop chart. The track had already gone to number 1 on Billboard's Dance Club Songschart in September. The following years solidified his signature sound and garnered the support of industry veterans with tracks like "Crazy Love" featuring Deb's Daughter, "One More Weekend" featuring MAX, and a trap-influenced collaboration fusing melodic & heavy components with 3LAU titled "Hot Water". At the same time, Audien continued on a path of dominance and worked with the likes of Echosmith on the track "Favorite Sound" while creating timeless remixes of songs by Coldplay, Halsey, Nile Rodgers, Jess Glynne, and Calvin Harris. In September 2017, Audien released his debut EP titled 'Some Ideas' on Astralwerks. The three-track EP contains a variety of genres, including "Rampart" which is a collaboration with hardstyle producer Gammer and "Message" whose sounds are reflective of past Anjunabeats releases and familiar Audien tones. In 2018, Audien returned to Anjunabeats with his release of "Higher", followed by "Never Letting Go" with Arty later that same year. In November 2019, Audien released his debut LP ʻEscapism' — a definitive effort encapsulating both Audienʼs signature style and his dominance in the dance landscape which included hit songs “Reach” featuring Jamie Hartman and “Buzzing” with Nevve. Audien is no stranger to hard work, and has continued to release music while honing in on his signature sound and style. In 2021 he signed with Armada and put out 3 singles — one of them being "Wish It Was You" with Cate Downey that has brought energy and emotion back to the dance floor. Look for Audien to continue on a path of progressive house and melodic trance in 2023 and beyond.
