Avicii fans have been anticipating new music from the Swedish producer/DJ, for a long time. He's been working on his album recently, and stirred up some buzz with his most recent Ultra Music Festival set this year. Now, we can hear the first single from his upcoming album - "Wake Me Up."
Pete Tong premiered the tune and said, "This probably is going to be a worldwide number one hit. A complete change in style, but a clever one."
"Wake Me Up" is unlike any other track Avicii has produced before. The song features Aloe Blacc, and has a country/folk feel to it. After premiering the song, Pete Tong said, "Nashville goes EDM." This is certainly a different direction for Avicii, and it's unique enough to spark a lot of curiosity as to what the rest of his new album sounds like.
