Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Chris Martin, System of A Down’s Serj Tankian, and Jon Bon Jovi are among the collaborator’s set for Avicii‘s next album. The EDM superstar previously worked with the Coldplay frontman on A Sky Full of Stars from the band’s latest album, Ghost Stories.
As Rolling Stone reports, in addition to a duet between US-based reggae artists Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu, the Swedish DJ and producer’s follow-up to his hit 2013 full-length, True, will include a collaboration with the Green Day frontman that has reportedly been titled No Pleasing a Woman.
Though there are currently no details on the other collaborations, Rolling Stone writes that the material the producer is working on for his as-yet-untitled album (due out late this year) is an expansion of the sound established on True. “It’s going to be a lot more song-oriented,” Avicii himself told the magazine. “True was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format.”
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, has developed a knack for drafting unexpected, cross-genre collaborators for his albums. Among the guests that appeared on True were Queen‘s touring frontman Adam Lambert, Soulfest-bound star Aloe Blacc, and dance music veteran Nile Rogers.
Regarding his relationship with Martin, Berling described the frontman as a trustworthy confidant. “Chris has been like a brother,” he said, before remarking on what it’s like working with Martin. “He needs every part to be perfect. I’m not like that,” he said, “which is why I’ve got 70 songs.”
