Avicii Branches Out Musically With New album
"It's just been, for me, very interesting [as a] learning experience," Avicii said in an interview with Radio.com. "I've been working with — instead of DJs, I've been working with musicians that come from completely different upbringings. Like, they've learned music differently and different ways of looking at music. Like [Chic leader/legendary producer] Nile Rodgers or Aloe Blacc or — I've been working a lot with [Incubus guitarist] Mike Einziger."
Although he'd spoken to Rolling Stone in February and revealed most of the decidedly mixed guest list, which also includes vocalists Dan Tyminski and Audra Mae as well as legendary songwriter Mac Davis, hearing that new portion of his Ultra set open with nothing but banjos and Aloe Blacc's vocals with nary a beat to be found sparked mixed reactions in the media. more on this story
