However, this album will have much more that the quintessential Avicii sounds, rock and roll legends Jon Bon Jovi, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Coldplay’s Chris Martin are all set to make guest appearances in the album.
Avicii is best known for his EDM style of music and his 2012 “Sunshine” – in collaboration with David Guetta – fetched him a Grammy nomination.
The new album will be in continuation to his 2013 album “True”, said the artist in an interview to Rolling Stone Magazine.
Although, the album has not been given a title yet, Billie Joe Armstrong’s song in the album will be called ‘No Pleasing A Woman’. Other multiple artist compositions in the album will include, a reggae duet with Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu.
The ‘Wake Me Up!’ star is also collaborating with System of a Down’s Serj Tankian. Avicii was ranked number 3 on DJ Magazine’s annual Top 100 DJ’s in 2012 and 2013.
Apart from producing record breaking hits, Avicii is associated with several charitable causes, in 2011 his charitable organisation ‘House For Hunger’ donated $1 million to Feeding America – a charity founded by Lauren Bush.
