Because of his worldwide acclaim, Avicii said he’s finally ready to release his first full-length album.
“I’ve always wanted to have an album, but there hasn’t been time for me to not tour and actually sit down and finish an album the way I want my album to sound,” he said of “True,” which he recorded in three months.
“Now (there) is no pressure really for me to make an album,” he added. “I’ve been able to play these bigger venues and still advance and make my brand bigger without even thinking about making an album.”
Unlike David Guetta, Calvin Harris and other DJs who produce for top acts like Rihanna and the Black Eyed Peas, Avicii says he’s not interested in helming hits for pop stars.
“Ever since I started I think I’ve kind of wanted Avicii to be the forefront,” he said. “I don’t have anything against writing for people or anything like that, (but) everything has just been going so well with Avicii right from the start, I haven’t seen a reason not to put everything I have into that brand, you know?”
