Avicii Confirms Working with Mike Shinoda, Nile Rodgers, on Debut Album

Avicii recently spoke to Rolling Stone about his debut album, which he has been working on for a while. He may not have Chris Martin from Coldplay on it (yet), but he has confirmed the following names contributed to the project:

The roster includes Mike Einzinger of Incubus, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, disco king (and David Bowie and Daft Punk collaborator) Nile Rodgers as well as Mac Davis, the country great who wrote the Elvis Presley hits “A Little Less Conversation,” “Kentucky Rain,” and “In The Ghetto.”

He made mention that one of the Mac Devis tracks even features Aloe Blacc. It sounds like he’s reaching into his Rolodex to make sure he has some huge singles, although we’re wondering if the album will sound like one cohesive statement, and not a bunch of singles.

As of right now, there’s no word on the title of this album, or when it’s expected to hit stores.
