Of-the-moment DJ Avicii
has been teaming up with a litany of diverse stars on his forthcoming debut album #TRUE
(hashtag true!) — and the latest collaboration features glam-pop singer Adam Lambert
and iconic musician (and “Get Lucky” cameo-maker
) Nile Rodgers
. Avicii described the song, titled “ID (Lay Me Down),” to Digital Spy
as having a “very disco” sound. He went on: “It’s kind of all over the place. It’s a fusion, but when you listen to the whole album it makes sense. It sounds like it’s going to be weird, but the final product is what I got so excited about.”
He’s been testing the song at various music festivals over the past few weeks — and despite the low quality of the performance audio, “ID (Lay Me Down)” sounds like a potential hit with Lambert’s strong vocals and the feel-good production. The collaboration, alongside a song with Imagine Dragons, will be on #TRUE, out September 17.
