The profound impact that one track can have on so many cannot be underestimated. Hardwells riff heavy “Apollo” was released at the end of November 2012 and was immediately identified as a track that would long out live the shelf life of your average big room roller. Laced together with a soulful hook, deep grinding bass and Amba Shepherds emotive lyrics, it was apparent upon its release that this track would become a firm fans favourite. Yet its legacy would become one based upon the shared memories and moments in the crowds of the festivals and club shows around the world that have been sound tracked by this anthem. As such “Apollo” has taken on an identity of its own as Amba Shepherd describes.

“Apollo is a song that’s totally changed my life. Writing the melody and lyrics all came together so quickly for me the stars were aligned. It shot straight up to #1 in the Beatport in Dec but it wasn’t really until Jan or Feb when I started seeing footage from all the huge festivals with huge stadiums full of people all singing along to the song that it was becoming unbelievable. In March Hardwell came to Australia and we performed it here to hundreds of thousands at Future Music Festival in Sydney & Melbourne, then Revealed in Miami and I Am Hardwell in Amsterdam in April. To have thousands of people all singing along holding up their hands and making love hearts at us is mind blowing and so humbling. I still get hundreds of tweets weekly about Apollo – people’s pictures and tattoos! I feel so honoured to experience this reaction to my music & felt we had to do an acoustic version to strip it back to the raw foundation of the song. So I put the vocal & piano arrangement together and found amazing LA pianist and composer Evan Duffy who worked his magic and turned it into gold. I shot the video in Sydney Miami and Amsterdam together with Robin Piree we wanted to show the very personal side of Apollo unfolding over the last 12 months and my journey along with it. ”

The track in its acoustic guise features during a poignant moment of the much-heralded I AM Hardwell documentary and it is able to convey raw emotive feeling with far more intent than simple spoken word. With the original having reached #1 in the Beatport chart earlier this year, the connection between the fans and this track cant be surpassed and this stripped back acoustic version will allow the listeners to relive memories already shared and create new ones. The track features on the I am Hardwell DVD and soundtrack which is due for worldwide release on the 6th of December
