Can you believe it’s almost been a year since Avicii began invading our eardrums with his runaway hit, “Levels“? Since then, the track has become a knockout crossover hit even getting a sample courtesy of Flo-Rida only making the song more available to the mainstream market. Can Avicii do it again with his new single?
Titled “Silhouettes“, this track definitely doesn’t lack in dance floor euphoria, but it may lack in the crossover hits department. Don’t get me wrong, I’m absolutely gagging for the new track, but I don’t see it having the same appeal to the mass market and commercial scene like the the Etta James sample gave. I do love the melody and mysterious vocals in the track however and the breakdown is killer!
The song was co-produced by Swedish violinist and composer Salem Al Fakir who also laid down the vocals for the version of this single. If you’re a fan of Avicii and have seen him live, he has been playing various versions of this track during his sets. Another version you may have heard features the vocals of Kelis. Give it a listen and tell us if you think “Silhouettes” has the same potential as “Levels“.
