Tiësto announces the release of his brand new single “Work Hard, Play Hard” out today on his Musical Freedom imprint. Featuring vocals from Kay, the package includes the original version and a remix from Toronto’s AutoErotique.

In June 2010, Tiësto announced a partnership with Sandisk – the leading manufacturer of flash memory cards for imaging, computing, mobile, and gaming devices – to create a crowd-sourced music video using mobile phone footage from concert audiences around the world. Fans who attended Tiësto concerts recorded their concert experience using mobile phones and then uploaded their footage. Tiësto then selected his favorite fan-generated clips for use in the official music video for “Work Hard, Play Hard (AutoErotique Remix).” The end result is world’s first music video made entirely by fans with their mobile phones.

In its original form “Work Hard, Play Hard” is a track that fit for megaclubs and summer car trips alike. A mix of funky electro synths, driving percussion and a killer lead line, Kay then hits us with those perfectly pop vocals. Featuring a monster breakdown that rattles the room the track is build for summer dance floors globally. The perfect companion, Dim Mak’s AutoErotique brings a rave-roc flavor to their remix and offers a filthier approach to the track. As the track featured in the music video AutoErotique’s bleeding edge remix is sure to please all around.
