David Guetta wants new album to surprise music fans
David Guetta, who will be entertaining dance music devotees with Creamfields tickets this month, has revealed that he designed his new album to surprise listeners.
Nothing But the Beat, Guetta's fifth studio album, features collaborations with the likes of Usher, Jessie J, Lil Wayne and Jennifer Hudson.
It represents another step in the DJ's mission to bridge the gap between dance music and urban culture, an aspect of his career he is particularly proud of.
Speaking to the Sun, Guetta revealed that he wants to bring electronic music to people who would not ordinarily hear it.
"My music crossed over outside of my community, which I was happy about as good music is good music to me, whatever style," he said.
"I'm sure people can appreciate electronic music even if they aren't in that community and I wanted to surprise them."
Guetta is one of several big names confirmed for Creamfields 2011, with the likes of Paul Van Dyk, Calvin Harris and the Chemical Brothers also set to entertain the crowds at Daresbury estate over the August bank holiday weekend.
