Maarten Hoogstraten of Dutch act Bingo Players returns with the bass thumping "Lone Wolf," premiering exclusively on Billboard Dance.

"Lone Wolf" starts off with a quiet interlude that takes an unexpected turn with a slow strumming guitar that soon breaks into a cinematic explosion of strings and big brass sounds. Like the quiet before the storm, the fast bass builds in and out as chanting sounds carry the song throughout. 

Bingo Players' Big Comeback: Exclusive Interview

"Lone Wolf" is a sonic wakeup call for fans as the first music to be released since last year's "Curiosity" and "Nothing to Say," which also marked the first music from Bingo Players since the passing of member Paul Bäumer in 2013. As Hoogstraten perfectly put a few years back, "Bingo Players will always be plural," to remember Bäumer and carry on the music.

Bingo Players is currently on a spring tour and performed earlier this month at Miami Music Week's No Sugar Added.
