Do you ever get jealz of all the musicians teaming up for songs and wish you could join in? Well, you might just have an opportunity to work with Avicii on his next single. True story!
The Swedish talent explains, “I’m about to kick off the world’s largest music collaboration — and I want to work with you!” It’s called Avicii x You and the project web site will be launching on January 9. “It would be just really cool to make a really good song out of so many people’s different ideas,” muses Avicii in the video below. So we don’t know all the deets yet, but Avicii is sharing a chord progression with anyone who wants to get involved.

Writing about the project, Huffington Post said that it reminded them of “a ‘We Are the World’” mission, except there’s no charity involved. That got us thinking. Maybe Avicii will use this new project as a way to earn funds for a great charity. A year ago, he donated a million dollars to Feeding America, so we know he has the do-gooder blood in him.
So if you get involved, we’ve got a question for ya: if Avicii decides to make this charity-oriented, where would you want the money to go? Maybe to Feeding America as well? Maybe to a music charity, like something for music education? If this project is going to be as big as Avicii wants it to be (He says it’s gonna make music history, did you hear that Guinness World Book Of Records?!) then this could be one awesome chance for you to collab with a big name. And while it’s up to Avicii on what he does with his project, it’d be totally awesome if he does decide to go the charity route with it!
