Though we still have a little more than a month for Avicii‘s sophomore studio album, Stories, the electronic music star is ramping up the release process, with two new singles announced today and a pre-order for the new record now lined up.
The next Avicii singles will be “For a Better Day” and “Pure Grinding,” with both being released on August 28, the same day that Stories becomes available for pre-order. Smart money would guess that a pre-order would get you those singles in advance of the album’s release, but we’ll have to wait a week to see if that is the case. The ramp up will not be without its bells and whistles, with Avicii’s Instagram presenting the single artwork throughout the week.
These songs follow Avicii’s hit “Waiting for Love,” and while we don’t know much in terms of the sonic direction of the new songs aside that “For a Better Day” features Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, the simple fact that they are getting their own roll out is enough to warrant anticipation.
Stories is due out on September 25.
