Avicii premieres new track with Sia in Dubai
When Avicii announced his indefinite retirement from touring late last month, the news had a heavy impact on the dance community. Colleagues and fans around the world expressed their support of the producer’s decision to depart from performing after his 2016 run. Meanwhile, ticket demand for his upcoming performances proceeded to skyrocket. Although one of dance music’s most influential names is calling it quits from tour life for now, Avicii’s track output will certainly not suffer, with Dubai receiving a first listen of his newest song.
During a show at the Dubai Trade this weekend, Avicii slipped an ID in between his usual cuts, featuring Australian vocal powerhouse Sia. From what we can tell, the Swedish icon’s signature melody flair is written all over this track and even reflects a style similar to Avicii’s early hits that catapulted him into the spotlight back in the early 2010s. The track is further rumored to be a collaboration with fellow Swedish superstar Alesso. Listen to a live recording of the track above.
