New Avicii Premieres Tomorrow
After a bewildering set at Ultra in March and more than enough hype and gossip for one release, Avicii will be premiering a track off his new album Friday, June 14 during Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 Show. The Avicii camp released a video this week featuring what can only be a slice from Bergling’s much-anticipated album. Titled Wake Me Up, the preview isn’t much more than some guitar strumming and folksy lyrics, but it confirms the Swedish house superstar’s well-known plans of going country. It’s safe to assume we’re all looking forward to this one, for one reason or another.
