Avicii recruits big names for new album collaborations

Swedish dance music superstar Avicii has recruited Chris Martin, Billie Joe Armstrong and Jon Bon Jovi, among other big names for his next album.

The follow-up to last year's (13) True will also feature a duet between Wyclef Jean and Matisyahu.


And, teaming up with Coldplay star Martin has been beneficial for Avicii's health - he has been giving the DJ/producer nutrition tips after he was forced to cancel his appearance at the Ultra Festival in Miami, Florida in March (14) due to exhaustion.


He explains, "Chris has been like a brother and helps out with my nutritionist. I find it hard to gain weight, so I drink shakes in the morning."
