On a new episode of Most Requested Live, Tiësto joins Bennett to talk all about writing his recent banger "10:35" with Tate McRae for a club in Dubai, what being a dad and going on tour looks like now, and more.
LISTEN NOW: Most Requested Live — Tiësto chats "10:35," writing bangers, touring with kids, and what 2023 is looking like
Thankful for “all the support” the single has gained, Tiësto shared how “10:35” came about. “The song came together because I wanted to write a song for a new resort in Dubai. They approached me to make a special song for them. And then we wrote the song '10:35' with Ryan Tedder as well on board, who’s also not a stranger to writing hit songs… And then I’ve always been a fan of Tate. I love her music, great personality, high energy, beautiful voice. So we approached her and she was on board, and together we finished the song, and boom — a hit.”
After delving into his collaboration wish list, which includes Miley Cyrus and so many others, some of which are not necessarily famous, but just “have a great voice,” Tiësto got into what its like balancing bangers with parenting while on tour.
“I’m a DJ touring, but its not all the time anymore,” Tiësto admitted. Since becoming a parent the EDM hitmaker has had to shift around his schedule to make time for his kids. “I really pace myself. We were just in Malibu for five days, then I play a show in Vegas, then I have another five days off. So I really try to be there for the kids and not be just touring… We’re still finding the balance, but I think for the most I seem to get it right, and in the future, in a couple of years, they can come on the road with me, so that’ll be fun.”
Also up for discussion, Tiësto shared how he writes his hit songs (including the White Lotus Theme Song remix), and what 2023 holds for one of the greatest to ever do it. To hear it all, listen to the entire episode above.
