Rita Ora & AlunaGeorge Feature On Avicii’s Comeback EP
After conquering pop radio with crossover hits like “Wake Me Up,” “Hey Brother” and “Addicted To You,” Avicii was arguably the biggest dance music producer in the world. However, he experienced diminishing returns with his sophomore LP and then decided to pull the plug altogether in 2016 after suffering from burnout. Happily, the Swede rediscovered his passion for mellow, radio-friendly EDM and is releasing a comeback EP called AVICI (only one “i”) on August 11. As expected, the six-track set features a couple of exciting cameos.
For starters, Rita Ora lends her vocals to a track called “Lonely Together.” The Brit had previously performed a semi-acoustic version of the song at an event in London, but Avicii’s dreamy electronic production lifts it to another level. This really should be the lead single. Another collaboration worth checking out is his banger with AlunaGeorge, “What Would I Change It To.” Other guest vocalists on the EP include Swedish singer Sandro Cavazza and Canadian newcomer Billy Raffoul.
