AVICII IS COLLABORATING WITH ROCKERS FOR NEW ALBUM

Avicii is hitting up the rock world for collaborations on his upcoming album. Loudwire is reporting that the DJ is recording tracks with System of a Down's Serj Tankian, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, and Incubus' Mike Einziger

Einzinger, who worked on Avicii's last album as well, recently recalled their first meeting with DancingAstronaut.com saying, "We spoke for a few hours and made a plan to write songs together and the very first thing that happened when we worked together is we wrote 'Wake Me Up.' That was our first attempt at writing music together, which is crazy looking back at it. He's someone who's very opinionated and knows what they like and don't like, and that's really important, a good thing right off the bat. We wrote a few new songs together. We did one together with Billie Joe of Green Day. That one's really exciting. We did a few with AlunaGeorge, some stuff with Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu."

Rolling Stone is reporting that the song with Billie Joe is called "No Pleasing a Woman."

The magazine also revealed that Avicii has also recorded with Coldplay's Chris Martin and Jon Bon Jovi for the new project.
