1. Avicii — “True”
As I’ve written about multiple times this year, I believe that Avicii completely changed the direction of electronic music in 2013 by combining bluegrass and country music with traditional 4 on the floor house beats … and all of this from a 24-year-old Swede, who zigged while everyone else was zagging. Although his new sound was met with mixed reaction when he debuted it at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami last March, lead single “Wake Me Up” quickly became one of the most played songs of the year, at everywhere from EDM festivals to your grandma’s birthday party. For his first full-length studio album, Avicii took the risk of alienating his core audience to work with artists like Incubus’s Mike Einziger, 71-year-old country music singer Mac Davis, and (again) Nile Rodgers (see Daft Punk), to produce an album as diverse as his chosen collaborators. And yet the album always still felt uniquely signature Avicii. Standout vocals from Aloe Blacc, Adam Lambert, Blondfire, Audra Mae, Karen Marie Ørsted, Josh Krajcik, and Salem Al Fakir, made “True” feel exactly that — an honest reflection of the best that electronic music has to offer.
The Hollywood Reporter – ‘American Idol’ Alum Angie Miller on Her Early Christmas Present, Advice From Adam Lambert ““When I met him, it was kind of like an instant click because we know what each other went through,” she says. “He said a lot of great things about what is going to happen after Idol. He gave a lot of hints about what do when it was over. I don’t know the business side of things at all. I never had a reason to know about lawyers and contracts, and he helped a lot with that side of things.””
The Telegraph – Adam Lambert v Russell Crow – Culture spats of 2013 “In January, Russell Crowe defended the singing on the new film Les Misérables after criticism from former American Idol star Adam Lambert. Lambert had criticised Tom Hooper’s new movie musical, insisting Les Misérables “suffered massively” due to its all-star cast “pretending to be singers”. He also said the voices should have been “studio recorded and sweetened”. Crowe, who plays Javert in the film, said: “Sure it could have been sweetened, [director] Tom Hooper wanted it raw and real, that’s how it is.””
