Album of the Day
When French DJ and music producer David Guetta entered the studio to make LISTEN, he wasn't afraid to mess with the formula that had made him an international star. “Until today I was always starting with the beat and then writing the song on it. This time I was starting with piano, voice and guitar, then producing around the song.” Filled with soul and emotion, the collection was Guetta's most personal (reflecting his recent divorce) and among his most varied – these tracks would sound great whether played by a classical orchestra, a rock group, or a funk band. Featuring such guest stars as John Legend, Sia, Nicki Minaj and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the set reached the Billboard Top 10. Released on this day in 2014, LISTEN marked a successful reinvention of one of EDM's leading lights.
