John Dahlbäck debuted the first single from his upcoming album on fellow Swedish producer Avicii's Levels podcast last week. Released through Armada Music, "Raven" is a rousing festival anthem that will likely get listeners moving on the dance floor. The single was released yesterday in anticipation of his next studio album.

"Raven" opens with a haunting piano piece, conjuring up gothic Poe-inspired images of black birds and cemeteries. The pace picks up as propulsive synths join the mix before the track dives head first into an explosive drop, as fat Future-house basslines pump away at the steadfast house beat.

The bassline throughout the drops become the most memorable portion of the track, bumping a catchy low-end melody and solidifying the dance floor grooves.

Listen to "Raven" below, and then head over to iTunes to snag your own copy.
