Avicii Is Working On Madonna's New Album
Madonna hit the studio with Swedish DJ Avicii to create hits from her new album. Get ready!

Avicii and Wyclef Jean have teamed up to record a soaring dance anthem called “Divine Sorrow”. The track is part of a new campaign by (RED) and Coca-Cola to raise awareness and cash to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in Africa with every cent raised from the club collaboration being donated to their Global Fund. It’s a very worthy cause but is the song any good? The answer, happily, is yes. So you have no excuse to not part with your coins!

There’s no word yet if “Divine Sorrow” will feature on Avicii’s much-anticipated sophomore set Stories but it has been confirmed as the lead single from Wyclef Jean’s upcoming LP Clefication. I’d be surprised if it ended up on the Swedish DJ’s new album given all the talk about switching up his sound this time around. The soul-infused house concoction is something of a throwback to the content of True — think “Wake Me Up” — but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Particularly when you consider how disappointing “The Days” was. Listen after the jump.
