NEW Tiesto track featuring Sigur Ros' Jonsi Birgisso - up on Pitchfork

via Pitchfork: "The name Tiësto may conjure images of big-room, heart-tugging trance music, but the world-conquering DJ is gunning for some rock cred with his forthcoming LP, Kaleidoscope, due October 20 on Ultra. The record's guest list includes Bloc Party's Kele Okereke, Metric's Emily Haines, Tegan and Sara, Kianna Alarid of Tilly and the Wall, and Sigur Rós' Jónsi Birgisson, who lends his angelic pipes to the title track to this seven and a half minute epic-- which is available on iTunes right now-- enjoy!"

35 Dates Announced for the North American Leg of the Kaleidoscope World Tour
First Single Tiësto and Sneaky Sound System "I Will Be Here" Out Now

The new album 'Kaleidoscope' is Tiësto's 4th artist recording and is expected to reflect the growing stature of a man who many consider to be the world's biggest DJ. The first single, titled 'I Will Be Here', released on July 28th on Ultra Records, following the debut on BBC's Radio 1. The video for this single will premier exclusively on MySpace on August 7th.

Tiësto's career highlights to date are many, but recent exploits include a GRAMMY nod for his last artist album, 'Elements of Life' and headlining both Coachella and Bonnaroo Festivals. With over 1 million Facebook friends (the largest of any electronic artist on the planet), global brand sponsorships deals and sell out headline shows around the world, Tiësto is on the crest of a wave which is only set to continue. He also sits at the helm of his new label Musical Freedom, a recent development since he parted ways with the Holland-based Black Hole record label.

In addition to being a huge live draw (this past Friday, Tiësto staged his own outdoor headline show to a sell out crowd of 25,000 in London's Victoria Park) Tiësto is also one of the world's biggest names in remixing, with recent work completed for Bloc Party, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, and Calvin Harris. The forthcoming long player will cement the reputation of a truly global superstar in the prime of his career.

Tiësto had this to say regarding the new album and forthcoming North American tour: "I'm very excited to work with Ultra Records to release Kaleidoscope. The company understands my artistic vision for the project and brings a lot of forward thinking to what I believe is my best record to date. Most importantly, I can't wait to start playing this record out! It will be special to start off in New York City, then go all over North America for our first leg of the tour."

The release of Kaleidoscope on October 20th will be supported by a worldwide tour in 2009-2010, taking the Kaleidoscope live experience out on over 175 dates, across 5 continents. North America in Sept-Nov 2009 will range from arenas and coliseums to intimate nightclubs.
