Avicii Teases Adam Lambert and Nile Rodgers Collaboration ‘Lay Me Down’ (LISTEN)
Avicii may have been around for a while now but the ‘Wake Me Up’ hitmaker is only just about to release his first album ‘True.’
Although he hasn’t released an album yet, the 24-year-old has already been nominated for a Grammy and worked with the likes of Nicky Romero and David Guetta.
Tim Bergling – known as Avicii – has previewed tracks from his upcoming album ‘True’ on his website. The track with the biggest buzz around it is his collaboration with American Idol runner up Adam Lambert and Chic legend Nile Rodgers.
The 90-second long clip of their song ‘Lay Me Down’ features a big funky sound that clearly comes from Rodgers and clean pop vocals from Lambert.
Describing the album, Avicii told Digital Spy: “It’s kind of all over the place. It’s a fusion, but when you listen to the whole album it makes sense.
“It sounds like it’s going to be weird, but the final product is what I got so excited about. Once I started making these tracks I realised that it works.”
He continues: “It doesn’t sound forced or that I’m trying to be pretentious – it’s just made total sense.”
Avicii’s debut album ‘True’ will be released on September 17.
