Avicii Plans To Go Rock On The Follow-Up To Debut LP ‘True’

Avicii redefined the sound of (mainstream) EDM with debut LP True by blending folk/acoustic elements (see smash hits “Wake Me Up” and “Hey Brother”) into his heady synthscape. The Swedish hitmaker is determined to repeat the feat again — by collaborating with a series of rockers including Jon Bon Jovi, Serj Tankian of System Of A Down and Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong on his sophomore set.

There’s even a reggae song on the opus featuring Wyclef Jean and Matis­yahu.”It’s going to be a lot more song-oriented,” Avicii says of the album. “True was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format.” I’m not sure how I feel about this. The 24-year-old’s collaboration with Coldplay was surprisingly great but the idea of Serj Tankian voicing a club anthem makes my blood run cold. Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

Are you excited to hear Avicii’s new musical direction? Let us know in the comments below.
