Paul van Dyk returns with his latest single, “Guiding Light” that offers fans exactly what they need during these uncertain times.


In light of the global pandemic, Paul van Dyk put his Guiding Light album on pause to focus on another project, Escape Reality designed to revive fans during unprecedented times. Now, he’s back on track to carry fans to a state of trance bliss with the details that the album will see its full release on August 28, and has gifted them with the title track as well!

The circumstances in which we danced so far this year have been different, but crucially we never stopped dancing,” Paul van Dyk said. “Guiding Light’s message was always about showing us a way through and I don’t believe there’ll ever be a greater need for that than now. The album’s singles have shown their power to spiritually uplift – as much off the floors as on, so it’s time to let the rest of its music to do the same.”
