"Silhouettes" on my local radio station tonight!

Tonight I heard "Silhouettes" for the first time on my local radio station, as I hadn't heard them play it before.  It was such an amazing feeling, hearing Salem's voice on a Scottish radio station at last.  Even if he is only the featured vocalist on Avicii's song, it is still something to get excited about!

Although the song was released digitally in this country a couple of weeks ago, this week is the official release week for the song, so I wonder if it will climb back into the UK top 40 again?  "Silhouettes" is on the BBC Radio 1 B-list playlist at the moment, whilst the current chart positions are no. 34 on the UK iTunes chart and no.44 in the Official UK top 40.

Top UK entertainment website Digital Spy has an interview with Avicii at http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/music/interviews/a386570/avicii-interview-im-not-the-new-david-guetta.html and this paragraph is of particular interest, for obvious reasons:-

Your new single 'Silhouettes' is a big, euphoric dance track - what's it inspired by?

"It's hard - some people get inspired by a feeling, but I'm mostly inspired by melodies. The person who co-produced this track with me is incredible - he can play every instrument you can think of. We took as much of that as we could and tried to make it dance-friendly and something different from what is in the charts now."

No names mentioned, but we know who he means :)

Let's hope that the coming weeks bring even more success for Tim and Salem's collaboration and that it becomes the worldwide dance hit of summer 2012.
