The 'Wake Me Up' hitmaker says that the follow-up to 2013's 'True' will be 'a lot more song-oriented.'
Avicii is working on his next album with some famous names in rock music. According to Rolling Stone, the Swedish DJ has listed Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin, rocker Jon Bon Jovi and Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day as collaborators for his sophomore set.
The music site also revealed that Avicii had a reggae collaboration with Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu. "I love it," the 24-year-old entertainer whose real name is Tim Bergling said of the song. "But I don't know what to do with it yet."
The new album, for which Avicii has made 70 songs, currently has no official title or release date. "It's going to be a lot more song-oriented. 'True' was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format," the EDM producer revealed what to expect from his upcoming project.
Avicii had a huge success with his 2013 debut album "True". Peaking at No. 5 on Billboard 200, the LP was powered by "Wake Me Up" which reached No. 4 on Billboard 100 and features vocals from singer Aloe Blacc. The album also spawned hits like "Hey Brother" and "Addicted to You".
