Avicii's newest, "Wake Me Up" was just released yesterday on Pete Tong's Radio 1. Unfinished versions of this track have been floating around the internet for awhile, and there has been quite a bit of anticipation since Avicii first gave word that his new album would be heavily Folk based. Now however, it is finally official.

"Wake Me Up" is truly a beautiful melding of genres. Avicii creates something here that is so unique in the electronic world, and uses Aloe Blacc's delightfully soulful voice over a strumming guitar-based folk beat, which gives way to his signature electronic drop. What one might think seems crazy, Avicii took and made absolutely perfect.

"Wake Me Up" is set for a June 17 European release. Check back for more details on the new album and US release, I will share as they become available.
