Over a little more than a week ago, Avicii canceled all of hisupcoming shows due to ongoing health concerns. But just when you think he's down for the count, FIFA 15 premiered, "The Nights," Avicii's latest track, which will be featured on the game's soundtrack.
"The Nights" follows some patterns similar to those used on his debut album, True, like the use of acoustic guitars and catchy melodies. But "The Nights" scores a goal (yes I just went there) because of it's originality. For instance, how often do you hear gang vocals anymore? especially in an EDM song? Rarely.
Another sound that particularly sticks out is the main beat that comes in at the 1 minute mark. It's sounds like some sort of electronic steel drum, which has become the trademark sound of the up and coming tropical house genre. This could mean that Avicii's highly anticipated sophomore album Stories could have some tropical elements, which is believable considering who he's been admiring recently.
If "The Nights," is a preview of what's to come from Avicii, it seems like he's putting together a fantastic album for us. Avicii is joined on the FIFA 2015 soundtrack by Dirty South, A-Trak, Madeon and dozens of other artists, you can check out the official EA Sports playlist here on Spotify.
