It’s not too early to crown Swedish cutie Avicii the new David Guetta. All it took was one mas­sive hit (and a swing in di­rec­tion from the club podi­ums to the pop charts) and 24-year-old Tim Ber­gling (as his mum calls him) went bal­lis­tic in the charts with Wake Me Up. It was surely only a mat­ter of time be­fore some­one blended Mum­ford & Sons’ folk­i­ness into a dance an­them but Avicii did it first, scor­ing his first #1 hit. The rest of the al­bum is sim­i­larly hit-pos­sessed with Adam Lam­bert on board for Lay Me Down and Chic’s un­stop­pable Nile Rodgers (from Daft Punk’s Get Lucky) around for Shame On Me. The sound­track to sum­mer.
