Vluarr made his way into the year while donning the title of a Dancing Astronaut Artist to Watch. And for the first time under that denomination, the STMPD RCRDS phenom is continuing to build out his 2023 case of why he earned it. After reworking Mesto and Aloe Blacc at the onset of January, Vluarr is now back with “They Don’t Know,” his first original since his Tomorrowland ID-turned-2022 musical finale, “Higher.”
Following a similar release route as “Higher,” “They Don’t Know” was also another piece of the tracklist puzzle from Vluarr’s back-to-back showing at the STMPD RCRDS stage during the first-ever third weekend of Tomorrowland. And “They Don’t Know” picks up in the same exact place that his last STMPD RCRDS round left off, with Vluarr flexing his triple-threat stance once more with writing, singing—albeit it brief—and production credits on his 2023 opener. Inspired from a previously unfinished melody, “They Don’t Know” received a complete makeover, further tapping into his classical background with a forward-looking mix of orchestral elements, bass house and future house and simply reaffirming his status as a name we fully believe will take a musical leap this year. Stream “They Don’t Know” in its entirety below.
