Last year, when Avicii announced his retirement at the age of 26, stepping away from live touring after eight intense years of touring the world, there were murmurs of Swedish superstar would be leaving music scene for good. However, that wasn’t the case…..at all.
Tim Bergling’s “retirement” didn’t last a full calendar year; instead, he has returned in a big way unveiling a six track EP properly titled AVĪCI. In Buddhism, AVĪCI, means the lowest level of the Naraka or “hell” realm, into which the dead who have committed grave misdeeds may be reborn.
“I’m really excited to be back with music once again, it has been a long time since I released anything and a long time since I was this excited over new music! My focus on this first EP of the album was to get a mix of new and old songs, some that fans have been asking about/waiting for mixed with brand new songs that they haven’t heard before!” – Avicii
In what his first release since 2015, we see Avicii return to his roots with each tune delivering a lethal dose of his signature production style built around infectious melodies which create the uplifting energy that helped propel into stardom.
