aloe blacc releases and acoustic video for wake me up

Aloe Blacc joins guitarist Joel Van Dijk to deliver the official video for “Wake Me Up” (Acoustic) – a stripped down take on his summer smash with Avicii that captures the narrative beauty of folk. Van Dijk upholds the solid guitar melody from the original. His performance carries Aloe Blacc’s refrain past the four corners of their intimate performance space to create an explosive anthem of youth and self-realization that not only competes with the booming original but stands alone as a gorgeous composition that exposes the raw power of Aloe Blacc’s lyrics. This take on the track follows the massive success of the original from Avicii, which topped charts during the summer months. Check the footage below to watch Aloe Blacc’s acoustic take on “Wake Me Up.” Purchase “Wake Me Up” via iTunes.
