A few words from Hardwell on the album:
After releasing 21 mix albums here it is, my first ever artist album – United We Are.
 
I have spent over a year and half of my life tirelessly working on the road and in the studio to put together the music that makes up the sound of this album.
 
I wanted to create something that reflects me as an artist, which showcases my abilities as a producer, whilst keeping one foot in my world as a DJ.
The story behind this album is about our scene and the unity we have as one people who share this love for electronic music.”
