It was released on 21 November Reviews were mixed with critics praising the songwriting and catchiness of songs, but criticized the repetitive formula of the album. Listen is David Guetta's first studio album in three years since the release of the commercially successful Nothing but the Beat , which sold 3 million copies worldwide. And lately, my personal life has been a little more difficult, so it reflects also on the album, on the things that we're talking about, on the type of chords. I've never done this, because even for me it was all about making the people dance. I never want to feel like this, so I thought that the best way to avoid it was to kind of start from scratch again.

When was the last time you listened — actually listened — to it from start to finish? With intention, like you were watching a movie or reading a novel. Clear your schedule for the next three hours. Choose three full albums, whether from your collection or your streaming service of choice. Put them in an ordered queue as though you were programming a triple feature. Musicians spend years making their albums. But most of us are half-assed when it comes to listening to albums. We rip our favorite tracks from their natural long-player habitat, drop them into playlists and forget the other songs, despite their being sequenced to be heard in order.
The problem was that in he had moved to Manchester in the north-west of England, a city which did not lend itself to Springsteen-esque anthems. This record should have been accompanied by glittery arena shows and TV appearances; instead, it got the kind of lengthy po-faced think-pieces that misunderstood what the album delivered to its listeners—a jolt of fun.
