[NEW] Listen to Avicii's New Single "Silhouettes" Song Premiere

Avicii-450

It has been about a year since Avicii's insanely popular "Levels" first surfaced in clubs around the world and since then the track has evolved into a downright crossover sensation that has put the young Swedish DJ firmly on the map as one of the most exciting new forces in dance music. Capitalizing on his early success, Avicii also signed to Atom Empire/Interscope Records last year to take his music to a whole new level of notoriety

Many Avicii remixes, cuts, edits and tracks are floating around on the web, but the DJ announced last night via YouTube that after "Seeking Bromance," "My Feelings For You," "Fade Into Darkness" and "Levels," he has chosen "Silhouettes" as his next single. The track will not be entirely new to dance aficionados among you as Avicii has included different varieties of the song in his live sets ever since he first premiered it at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami last year. The song was co-produced by Swedish violinist and composer Salem Al Fakir who also contributed to vocals to the song. (There's also a version of the song available that includes the vocals of Kelis.)

Avicii once again pulls out all the stops on this new single. Showing off his fine (Swedish) sense of melody, "Silhouettes" is a pop-savvy production that packs heaps of energy with its steady builds and melodic drops that will stir up plenty of dancefloor euphoria to keep the party going and going long after "Levels." This new Avicii single is released in conjunction with his North American "Levels" tour that kicks off on May 17 in Houston. Get all the tour dates here. Check out the original mix of "Silhouettes" below with some footage from Avicii's New York NYE show.
