Avicii's new CD, True, is ready to drop on Tuesday, and it includes a treat for Adam Lambert fans.

The Swedish DJ teamed up with producer Nile Rodgers for the track "Lay Me Down," which premiered online last week and has already shot to the No. 1 spot in Finland. True will be released by PRMD Music and Island Records.

"I really fell in love with his voice,” the 24-year-old DJ said in the Belfast Telegraph. "He just captured something on that first take."

"I need someone to do a lead vocal so I call Adam Lambert," added Rodgers, who contributed guitar on the funky, EDM dance-hybrid.

The American Idol season-eight alum wraps his vocals around the lyrics -- a collaboration between himself, Avicii, Rodgers and Ash Pournouri -- which state that "life is a dance."

"Lay me down in darkness/Tell me what you see," Lambert sings. "Love is where the heart is/Show me I'm the one, tell me I'm the one that you need."
