‘Where We Belong’s
road to release has been a long time coming for fans but now, that wait is finally over! Fedde Le Grand brings out one of his most highly anticipated releases to date; an incredible partnership between himself and DI-RECT, which is available exclusively through Beatport for its opening two weeks of release. Together they have forged a track that has captured the imagination the world over with its emotive feel and stirring presence. Loved by all when it was first premiered at ADE and summarizing an incredible year for Fedde, be sure to grab it now and experience it for yourself:
Serving as the perfect accompaniment to today’s release comes the masterfully directed video from Oscar Verpoort and Final Kid aired via Fedde’s VEVO. Taking place amongst a plunging landscape in the Icelandic Mountains, a series of breathtaking craning cameras and sweeping snowy chopper shots follow a young boy on his search for Eutopia, as he battles through the rubble of a ruined land. Juxtaposing the high-energy track with slow motion photography, we are allowed to bask in both the poignant imagery and rousing music – as harmonious as the two Dutch talents combining. DI-RECT’s thumping indie rock and Fedde’s typically accomplished production continue to build and build with blisssful tones and lead singer Veenendaal’s stirring lyrics right up till the euphoric conclusion.

The official video is not the only addition to Where We Belong however. Turning the camera around and putting the fans in the spotlight, Fedde & DI-RECT invited people to capture the powerful vocals bit-by-bit, word-by-word, in an enormous collective lyric video that spanned worldwide. Shot and compiled all on Instagram, check out the magnificent end result below:

Today’s release tops the bill of Fedde’s 2013 and truly bookends what has been another sterling year for production and performance. Ring in 2014 with the sound of ‘Where We Belong’ and see Fedde for yourself at the upcoming tour dates.
