Today, Gareth Emery has released the first single of his new highly anticipated album ’Drive,’ which comes out late April 2014. Watch the official music video of the new single ‘U,’ featuring gorgeous vocals done by English singer/songwriter Bo Bruce.

Going back to his melodic roots to which made his career. Here’s what Gareth had to say about his new album back in October:

News flash: my upcoming 2014 album will not feature trap, dubstep, drops or “that sound” we’ve heard in about 10000 EDM tracks this year.

Don’t get me wrong – I like “bangers” and have played my fair share of them, especially at festivals when they’re pretty fun, but that isn’t the musical direction I am going in right now.

It’s all about melody & songs. In a variety of styles.

About 85% there… I know it’s been a while so thank you for sticking with me. I am working hard to reward your patience.

Pre-order on iTunes now. \”U\” will be released February 4th.
