Avicii Unveils Release Date & Two New Singles From Upcoming Album
Avicii has been teasing his upcoming album for months, and it seems like every announcement has been bigger than the last. His upcoming Stories album features a jaw-dropping roster of collaborators which include Coldplay's Chris Martin, The Killers' Brandon Flowers, Zac Brown Band and Greenday's Billie Joe Armstrong.
In his most recent announcement, Avicii revealed that his upcoming album would feature his own singing voice, as the Swedish DJ will make his official debut as a recording vocalist. Just a month prior, the DJ confirmed that he had finally finished his sophomore effort after two long years of hard work.
Yesterday, fans got the final details they've been waiting patiently for months to hear. Avicii announced the official release date for the highly-anticipated album as well as a pre-order date, which is just a few days away! That's right, fans can pre-order Avicii's long-awaited Stories album on August 28 before the official release on October 2. And still, there's more...
Avicii has officially announced that on August 28, two new singles from the album will be available for download: "For A Better Day" and "Pure Grinding."
The single "For A Better Day" will feature Alex Ebert and is described to be a "lush, uplifting contemporary ballad" while "Pure Grinding" will feature Kristoffer Fogelmark and Earl St. Clair and is expected to be a "rhythmic collision of hip/hop, soul and cinematic sounds in an electronic atmosphere."
