London, 29 January, 2021 – Dutch visionary Don Diablo has dropped his brand new single ‘Into The Unknown’. The follow-up single to his recent hits, ‘Bad’ and ‘Kill Me Better’ – ‘Into The Unknown’ is out now via his very own Hexagon imprint.
With the world in the midst of a global pandemic, the unprecedented situation brought about a period of deep reflection for Don, who unexpectedly found solace in the chaos, a sentiment that is effortlessly encapsulated in ‘Into The Unknown’. Layering a haunting melody and deep bass, Don’s own distorted vocals lead the 3-minute sonic journey and lend the track its profoundly personal edge. Renowned for his phenomenal video treatments, the visual accompaniment to ‘Into The Unknown’ showcases a side to the producer that has never been seen before. Shot in Amsterdam, the video contributes to the track’s dark and sultry soundscape, offering a glimpse inside Don’s mind, with the use of mirrors quite literally emphasising his reflective state. Alternating between a hotel room and an underground club, the video showcases a sensual yet mysterious side of Don, the public has never had the chance to meet.
Speaking about the project, Don said “I wrote and produced “Into The Unknown” after spending countless days alone inside my house, without seeing any daylight, going outside or seeing anyone. Growing up I spent most of my days alone. Inside. Creating sounds. Just me and my music. Not knowing what the future would hold. I have been making and releasing music from the age of thirteen and it will always be the biggest love of my life. This past year brought me back to that period in my life, a period of solitude as well as inner peace, away from all the chaos. Being on my own so much reminded me that I have always been living inside my own head, my own reality, my own zone. Not knowing what your next destination can be scary but it can also make way for new things, it can clear your mind. Creating new things and stepping outside of my comfort zone as a direct result of this pandemic has given me a sense of inner peace. Not knowing what the future will hold is okay, sometimes we have to embrace the unknown.”
