‘Are You With Me’ was first was first recorded by country artist Easton Corbin for his 2012 studio album All Over the Road. It was written by Tommy Lee James, Terry McBride and Shane McAnally. Lost Frequencies’ remix made it a hit all over the world. In an interview for Ministry of Sound, he was asked the influence behind this track, he said: “Well I was influenced by a track I heard 2 years before I produced Are You With Me, and I always wanted to make a track with just a guitar sound and bass. The track that influenced me was “One Day” remixed by Wankelmut!”
When asked about the huge success hit track achieved and if it was a surprise for him, Lost Frequencies replied: “Yes it did, I’d never expected it to become so huge. And it feels weird because I always think the track is doing good, but I’m always forgetting that my name is getting bigger as well, and that is a really strange feeling.”
First release was in 2012 (Mercury Nashville label). Lost Frequencies re-released it on October 27, 2014.
