In a legendary joining of forces, Dutch superstars Tiësto and R3HAB release their highly anticipated collaboration “Run Free (Countdown).” The release of this festival heater has had fans on the edge of their seats nearly all of 2023, since both artists have been dropping it in sets since February (over 50 times so far) on the main stages of events like EDC, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Creamfields, Amsterdam Music Festival as well as clubs such as LIV Miami, Zouk Las Vegas, Ushuaïa Ibiza and more.
This is not the first time the two behemoths collaborated together – their paths crossed previously on R3HAB‘s official remix of Tiësto‘s “Maximal Crazy” in 2011 as well as 2014’s “Wasted,” while Tiësto went on to remix R3HAB‘s “Samurai” the same year. Their reunion with “Run Free (Countdown)” proves to be a hit every time with its driving beats, big room appeal, and mesmerizing vocals, proving that this gem isn’t even close to being played out yet. Press play and get ready for the hottest anthem to close out the year.

“Tiësto defines the global club culture, and I’m excited to finally join forces. I shared the idea of ‘Run Free (Countdown)’ with him early this year, and he loved it. We’ve played it over 50 times on iconic stages, including Tomorrowland, Ultra, EDC, and Creamfields, honing the production to its final form. The countdown call-to-action and drop energy combo is special. This is my biggest 2023 club record, and fans have been going wild. I’m hyped to finally share it with the world.” – R3HAB
