Avicii Shines on New Album “Stories”

Tim Berling, more famously known as Avicii, just dropped his new album “Stories” that barely is confined within the EDM genre. On this album, the Swedish producer is making beautiful songs with meaning full lyrics (but little dance music influence) and it’s amazing. While some may grumble about the “old Avicii”, but musicality trumps all here! Avicii has taken massive strides to get to where he is today and we couldn’t be more excited!

Avicii’s matchless ability to blend folk, indie and electronic influences into an mixture of beauty is truly amazing, and “Stories” puts all of these talents on display in stark contrast of each other. The hit track of his new album called “Ten More Days”, is an exceptional portrayal of how diverse Avicii has become.

“All the songs have a story I wanted to tell”, he said. The new music on “Stories” is informed by Avicii’s experiences since the release of ”True”, from the elation of playing for 80,000 hometown fans in Stockholm and selling 500,000 tickets on his ‘True’ Tour, to coming down with an illness that resulted in a lot of cancelled tour dates at the end of last year.

Rather than making a total departure from ‘True”, his newly released album builds upon it. Avicii says that his new album “refines what I didn’t feel was perfect last time. I think there are more layers to the songs than before, and every song has been written on acoustic guitar, so the structure is different”. “Stories” represents a natural evolution in Avicii’s sound.

The album “Stories” is comprised of 14 new original tracks, including lead single “Waiting For Love”, which peaked at #1 on iTunes in 22 countries earlier this year. You might say that this single connects the dots between his debut album, “True”, and his new album, “Stories”, perfectly. “Waiting For Love” features playful melodies and emotive vocal hooks, while offering a glimpse of the rest of the album.
