Avicii Working on Rock Album Featuring Serj Tankian, Billie Joe Armstrong, Bon Jovi and More
EDM star Tim Bergling, a.k.a. Avicii seems to be taking a rock detour with his upcoming sophomore album, as the 24-year-old Swede has geared up with guitars and rounded up an impressive guest star roster from the rock domain.

As the Rolling Stone reports, a follow-up to 2013's "True" will feature System of a Down vocalist Serj Tankian, Green Day frontman Billy Joe Armstrong, rock superstar Jon Bon Jovi, as well as Coldplay's Chris Martin.

Furthermore, the record will include a reggae duet between Wyclef Jean and Matis­yahu, a song "Wake Me Up" author is very pleased with, but is still not sure where to place yet.

The artist has rounded up a batch of 12 songs from the group of 70 he's been working on in total. The yet-untitled effort is due out later this year and is aiming to broaden Avicii's horizons even further. "It's going to be a lot more song-oriented," he noted. "'True was' an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format."

Back to the guest list, Bergling is already well-acquainted with Chris Martin, as he had produced the band's "A Sky Full of Stars" single. "Chris has been like a brother," Avicii noted. "He helps out with my nutritionist. He needs every part to be perfect. I'm not like that. Which is why I've got 70 songs."
