Avicii's True Stories documentary is coming to Netflix

Grab the popcorn, people! 

Avicii has revealed his tell-all biopic, True Stories, is due to hit internet streaming service Netflix in the near future. 

The Swedish EDM star — who famously retired from touring in March 2016 after suffering stress and exhaustion on the road — spilled the news during the third episode of his radio show, Avicii FM. 

“I’m releasing my documentary this weekend…Levan [Tsikurishvili], who’s the director of the documentary, has followed me for the past four years I think, four or five years," Avicii said during the show.

"He’s had so much material from both in the studio, from behind the scenes on concerts, during good and bad times. I’m really excited. I’m also a bit nervous because it is kind of gritty sometimes. It’s very personal. There’s a lot of ups and downs. It’s going to be interesting to see what people say. I think it’s going to be in a bunch of movie theatres and also on Netflix after that.”

Avicii made his long-awaited comeback to the production world in September, releasing his six-track EP ‘Avīci’ to wild fanfare.

Featuring collaborations with Rita Ora, AlunaGeorge, Billy Raffoul, Vargas & Lagola and Sandro Cavazza, Avicii said: “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.”
