Tichelman has announced the release of a new single, Hands, coming to platforms Spotify, Stay Tuned Apple Music and iTunes on April 2.

Tichelman described Hands as “a fun, upbeat song, rhythmically pulling from Latin influences.”

His emphasis, he said, was writing a danceable track with a singable melody that will get stuck in listeners’ heads.

“This track was made with the hope that one day soon we’ll be back in the clubs dancing to this song!” he added.

As added inducement to pre-save or pre-order from the platforms, Tichelman said he will give away prizes to two of those who supply their email; one receiving a $100 Amazon gift card, the other a $50 Starbucks gift card.
