EDM DJ and music producer Avicii has brought on Zac Brown for his latest single, “Broken Arrows.”
EDM-country collaborations have been happening more often, with Lady Antebellum working with EDM artists Zedd and Audien, Jake Owen collaborated with Owl City, and even Zac Brown is working with EDM on his own tracks.
While speaking with B96 on February 9th, Avicii was asked about working with Zac Brown.
“I like his vocals a lot. I wanted to work with him. Honestly in the beginning when me and my manager started talking about it, I just wanted to find a song that would work with his voice, but I kind of knew it would too, he has such a great voice.” Avicii said. Avicii has worked with country and house before so he knew how to make the collaboration work. He also said that he believes Zac Brown “has one of the best country vocals, I think, of today.”
Avicii said the music video for the single is based on a true story, and that he likes the way it captures the American Dream. Check out the video for the single below.
