Avicii’s Album – Guest-List

Avicii02

Avicii, it seems, doesn’t do things by halves. Last year, the superstar Swede’s focus was touring – and it saw him tear through a superhuman 320 shows in 12 months. For the first half of 2013, however, Tim Bergling’s scaling the shows right back and turning his attention to his debut album. But he’s not tackling the record alone. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the Future Music Festival-headliner revealed that he’s working with one Nile Rodgers on the big LP.

Avicii’s about to kick off a four-day studio session with Rodgers, who famously revealed last year that he’s been lending Daft Punk a hand with their forthcoming album. But it’s not just the Chic-frontman Bergling’s recruited for the album – other very non-EDM collaborators include Elvis Presley hit writer Mac Davis, Mike Einzinger of 90s FM radio favourites Incubus and Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda. “Everything is single-oriented now, but that’s why the only reason to make an album is if…every track is like a single,” he said of the decision to bring the unusual set of collaborators on board. “No one’s doing this approach to the electronic music, so it’s exciting to me that EDM is at a place where it’s even possible to do it like this.”

So how’s that roll-call of collaborators going to change the Avicii sound? “I have access to those people now, so it’s going to be a lot of acoustic elements, but kind of twisted a little bit. It’s way more songs than I’ve done before and it’s everything from folk records to more soulful [stuff],” Bergling continued. “Me and my manager have been through this so many times, we want eight to ten songs on the album, no more, and we want every single one of them to be a classic. I’m not being cocky enough to say that’s what I’m going to accomplish, but that’s the goal.” It may be a lofty ambition, but having Nile Rodgers on board certainly won’t hurt Avicii’s chances.
