Avicii releases ‘Wake Me Up,’ lead single off forthcoming album, ‘TRUE’
One of the most heavily documented and highly anticipated albums of the year is finally on the way, as Avicii is set to release TRUE this coming September. Much of the album had been debuted at Ultra Music Festival, then reinforced with an official mix, but the lead single has finally been unveiled with its official released. As premiered by Pete Tong, Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” serves as a sui generis production among the dance music landscape as a harmonization of electronica, soul, bluegrass, and its own unique flare in between. Featuring vocals from Aloe Blacc, folk guitar riffs, and a subtle dose of familiar chord stylings, Avicii is setting the precedent with his new single even months ahead of his debut album.
