Last year, Avicii debuted songs from his True album at Ultra Music Festival. The album was heavily criticized as it stepped outside the world of ‘EDM' and was compared to that of country and folk music. The album far surpassed anyone's expectations and became one of Spotify's most streamed songs of all time.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Avicii said that his new album will feature Jon Bon Jovi, Coldplay‘s Chris Martin, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, Wyclef Jean, Matisyahu and System of a Down's singer Serj Tankian.
Avicii‘s new album is said to be a 70 track album and is “going to be a lot more song-oriented. True was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format.”
