Avicii Drops New Single ‘Wake Me Up’

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Avicii is back. The Swedish DJ dropped his new single ‘Wake Me Up,’ which features soul singer Aloe Blacc. It’s not what you’d expect from Avicii or from any EDM artist, really. However, it could be Avicii’s wake-up call to his genre of choice.

The melody feels familiar in the first verse, and it sounds a bit like Emeli Sande‘s ‘Next to Me.’ Hear it? Turn it up and take a close listen.

The rest of it is folky, semi-country and soulful, like something you’d hear on the American frontier. It’s not what you expect to blare out of the speakers at the club during the wee hours of the early morning, but it certainly is unique.

It’s certainly unique. But then again, what else would you expect from one of the hottest DJs working today? He’s turning tables, in more ways than one. The dance genre is always looking for ways to reinvent itself and Avicii could be leading that charge with ‘Wake Me Up,’ which should appear on his next album.
