Avicii has some pretty big plans for his follow-up to True, as for the DJ’s sophomore outing, he’s set to collaborate with several exciting talents. Rolling Stone reports that Billie Joe Armstrong, Chris Martin, Serj Tankian, Wyclef Jean, Matisyahu and Jon Bon Jovi will all be lending their talents to Avicii’s next album.
“It’s going to be a lot more song-oriented,” the DJ/producer explained. “True was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format.”
While the Martin collaboration makes sense, given that Avicii helped out on Coldplay’s A Sky Full of Stars, some of these other names are definitely surprising. I’m pretty curious as to what a collaboration with someone like Bon Jovi or Billie Joe Armstrong will sound like, though. After all, if there’s anyone who can successfully mix EDM and rock and roll together into one cohesive and fluent track, it’s Avicii.
Tell us, does the news of these collaborations have you excited for the next album from Avicii? Let us know in the comments section below.
