Avicii's Sophomore Album to Feature Chris Martin, Jon Bon Jovi, Wyclef Jean and More

The Swedish DJ has recorded 70 songs for his next studio album but hasn't named it yet. Avicii's Sophomore Album to Feature Chris Martin, Jon Bon Jovi, Wyclef Jean and More

Avicii will reportedly be teaming up with some of the biggest rock musicians on the planet for his second studio album.

The Electronic Dance Music DJ's follow up to his last year's debut disc "True" will feature Coldplay's Chris Martin, rock veteran Jon Bon Jovi and Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, as per a news report published by the Rolling Stones magazine.

In addition to the big-name rock trio, the Swede's yet-unnamed album will also have a reggae collaboration with Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu. The song has apparently already been recorded but Avicii has yet to add his trademark touch to it. About the tune, he is quoted as saying: "I love it, but I don't know what to do with it yet."

Rumor has it that he has made 70 songs for the album but hasn't decided a name for it nor a tentative release date has been given. Regarding the album's theme, he said: "It's going to be a lot more song-oriented. 'True' was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format."

Avicii's first foray into music as a solo artist was deemed a massive commercial and critical success, as "True" soared to fifth place on Billboard 200. The set's biggest hit undoubtedly was "Wake Me Up" featuring Aloe Blacc that peaked at number 4 on Billboard 100.
