The Song: Taking the EDM to a new level, Avicii brings the heat with the lyric video of his newest single ”Wake Me Up.” With an unexpected twist, Avicii serves a blend of live instrumentation, country swagger and a collaboration made in heaven featuring Aloe Blacc. The first single from his highly anticipated debut album #TRUE, Avicii describes the production of his latest as a “harmonization of electronica, soul, bluegrass, and its own unique flare with folk guitar riffs, and a subtle dose of familiar chord stylings,” to MStarz.com.

Why The Video Wins: Serving a serene outlook on life, the calming visuals, potent lyrics, mixed with Aloe’s smooth vocals, alongside the treks on the road along with screaming fans and extravagant stage set-ups, Avicii pushes the envelope with his leading single off of his new album #TRUE.
