ACRAZE shares brand new single “Believe,” featuring Goodboys. The new track follows his rapid ascension to global chart-topping artist as a result of “Do It To It.” As the first single since his global hit, “Believe” comes with certain expectations. For the follow-up single, ACRAZE enlists the duo Goodboys resulting in an uplifting and bolstering house track. The ominous intro transforms into a lush house atmosphere with bubbling synth-work, crisp percussion, and an unwavering bass line. The gratifying chorus comes from “Toca’s Miracle,” a mashup of Coco’s “I Need a Miracle” and Fragma’s “Toca Me” that topped the UK Official Singles Chart in 2000. “Believe” is out now via Thrive Music/Capitol Records, available for download / streaming HERE.
“On your journey to success, it’s inevitable that you will hear ‘no’ more than ‘yes.’ Believing in myself when no one else did was what I did best. This song is a true representation of what it felt like in the low moments of my life. I hope you guys enjoy ‘Believe’ as much as we enjoyed making it.”
ACRAZE debuted “Believe” during his massive Do It To It summer tour. The 50–date outing featured performances across 19 countries and festival slots at Ultra, Tomorrowland, Sensation and more. The visual for “Believe” gives fans a glimpse of the tour’s highlights. With fall festival season here, you can find ACRAZE at Breakaway Carolina, EDC Orlando, and Seismic Dance Festival.
