It’s been in the works for years but it looks like Avicii will finally be releasing his debut album in full on September 17th. Entitled True, the 23-year-old Swedish producer/DJ’s forthcoming studio album is definitely one of the most anticipated efforts in dance music and it’s already shaping up to be quite the treat. “This is about me being true to my sound but also to my own influences and musical preferences,” Avicii expressed to Billboard. “This album consists 100% of songs I personally love. It’s true to me, true to my brand, true to Avicii.” Confirmed collaborators include: Joakim Berg, Audra Mae, Nile Rodgers, Mac Davis, Incubus’ Mike Einziger, and Aloe Blacc, who is featured on the lead single “Wake Me Up,” a sui generis production bringing together electronica, soul, folk guitar riffs, and its own unique Avicii flare in between. The track is destined to be a worldwide hit. What do you guys think?
