tiesto to drop new album

Tiesto is preparing to unleash his fourth artist album, Kaleidoscope, Oct. 20 on Ultra Records. Contributors include Jónsi of Sigur Rós, Kele Okereke of Bloc Party, Nelly Furtado, Calvin Harris, Tegan & Sara, Emily Haines of Metric, Kianna of Tilly & The Wall, Sneaky Sound System and more.

"The starting point was to work with different artists that I liked," Tiësto states. "It was as simple as that. Sigur Rós make beautiful music. Bloc Party are fantastic and exciting and innovative. But the hardest thing initially was to get those kind of people to collaborate. They don’t work with dance artists as a rule, and especially not a dance DJ, but when we started producing these tracks, I was surprised at how well the styles work together."

Furtado, with her producer, Timbaland, caught Tiesto's DJ performance during the 2008 Winter Music Conference in Miami. She collaborated on two tracks with the spinner.
