Adam Lambert Is Conspicuously Absent From Avicii’s “Lay Me Down” Video: Watch

While we wait for Avicii to select the follow-up to top 20 smash “Hey Brother” in America, the Swedish hitmaker is already rolling out the fifth single from True internationally. He opted for “Lay Me Down” — a disco-infused floorfiller, which was co-penned by Chic legend Nile Rodgers and voiced by Adam Lambert. Unfortunately, they are both absent from the video.

It’s disappointing because the DJ has gone above and beyond to deliver great visuals this era. (Highlights include the “Addicted To You” lego alternate video and his wild “Wake Me Up” animated adventure). Don’t get me wrong. “Lay Me Down” is still worth a look but it could have been so much better. Watch Avicii do his thing behind the decks up top.

Would the video be better with Adam? Let us know in the comments below.
