Hear Avicii's Awesome Unreleased Jam With the Killers' Brandon Flowers
Flowers co-wrote Avicii's 2014 single "The Days" and a new version with him on lead vocals just surfaced.
Last year, Avicii collaborated with Robbie Williams on a single called "The Days," which is expected to appear on the DJ's 2015 album Stories. It's an acoustic-folk-meets-electro-pop track in the vein of "Wake Me Up," and it's pretty darn catchy. Recently though, an alternate take hit the Internet -- and it might be even better.
This one features Brandon Flowers taking on Williams' vocal duties, and given the the Killers frontman's love of anything with a synthesizer, it's right in his wheelhouse. Belting a life-affirming line like, "These are the days we won't forget!"? Also very much in his wheelhouse. Flowers co-wrote the track, so it makes sense that he gave it a go with his own vocals.
Flowers sounded great collaborating with M83 on the Killers' track "Shot at the Night," too, so we'd certainly be down to hear more Flowers-DJ collaborations in the future. In the meantime, though, he's touring behind his new solo album The Desired Effect.
