Wake Me Up producer and Swedish DJ, Avicii is looking to bring it in big this year. Taking to his Instagram account, he was utterly grateful for the past year, but is sure looking forward to 2017. He announced: “HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2016 was a rough year for many of us but tonight we get a fresh new start. My new year’s resolution is to make the best damn album of my career #nopressure #greattobeback”
Last year, Avicii shocked and saddened fans world over, when he wrote an essay on his official website, talking about retiring forever from doing live shows. He was being treated for a liver disease related to alcohol consumption. He has made it known that he got into the habit of drinking alcohol while he was still young and was performing to sold-out shows all over the world. Due to his sickness, he was forced to take time off from his stellar career as one of the top DJs and gain back his health. Since then, if you follow him on social media, you know that he been living the life, going to exotic locations and visiting with animals on safaris.
Another big change he made in 2016 was “breaking up” with his longtime manager and “brother”, Ash Pournouri.
But fans are already pumped about the announcement. It has been a while since 2015’s smash hit Stories that transcended genres and brought more soul and connection with connoisseurs of the Swedish DJ’s music. He hasn’t yet named the album or released any teaser tunes yet, but sooner rather than later, we should be able to download or pick up a copy of his new music and keep the love alive! And stay tuned for any and all updates on the DJ.
