Still riding high off the success of his vocal feature on Avicii's "Wake Me Up," singer Aloe Blacc chatted with Billboard at Sundance 2015 about what's coming up next, performing with Lady Antebellum, and his thoughts on social media and music streaming.
"We worked hard at it," Blacc tells Billboard of the inescapable "Wake Me Up." "Mike Einziger and Avicii and I were able to create something that I think touched the world in a great way."
Blacc recently performed the song with Lady A during the the CMT Ultimate Kickoff Party in Dallas. "That was really fun," he recalls. "I was honored to be invited to perform with them at them at the CMT event. They'd been covering the song, 'Wake Me Up,' at the show and they invited me to sing it. It was great to get in front of their audience."
The singer says he's not worried about whether his next musical project will achieve the same hit status as "Wake Me Up."
