After a five-year break between studio sets, globe-trotting superstar DJ Tiësto is returning with A Town Called Paradise on June 17th via Casablanca Records. The set features a host of guests, including Icona Pop, whose relationship with the Dutch musician dates back to last year, when he remixed their smash "I Love It" ("I really liked the song from the first time I heard it," he told us at the time). The duo appeared alongside Tiësto at Ultra Music Fest this year to perform their latest collaboration, "Let's Go," which appears on Paradise as well as in an ecstatic 7Up commercial. And now, with Paradise available for pre-order for its standard and deluxe versions on iTunes, we're premiering the full track here.

"I'm so happy that I was able to work with Icona Pop on this track," Tiësto says. "I love their voices and their style and they really killed it on this one!"

As Tiësto told us earlier, his album was heavily influenced by an American city where he holds two residencies: Las Vegas. "When I really look at it, it’s like this oasis of entertainment right in the middle of the desert," he said, "so to me, 'A Town Called Paradise' is a good way to describe Las Vegas."

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
