Only a few short days away from the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album Stories, the follow-up to his smash debut LP, True, Avicii has gifted fans with a pair of treats off the LP, Ten More Days and Broken Arrows.
We’re not entirely sure why he didn’t decide to release Ten More Days a week ago–that would make sense, right?–and we’re also not sure if this actually even counts as electronic dance music, but the fact remains that this is a finely crafted, guitar-driven ballad highlighted by smooth instrumentals and powerhouse vocals. Broken Arrows sees the Swedish savant put on his boots and cowboy hat once more for a country/dance music rodeo that feels like the little brother to his massive collaboration with Aloe Blacc, Wake Me Up. It doesn’t reach the heights of its predecessor, but it’ll be sure to be a hit in square dance circles everywhere.
Listen to both songs up above, and pre-order Stories on iTunes ahead of its Oct. 2 release date here.
