Avicii has launched a new website, which suggests that new music is on its way soon.
It’s exactly a year since Avicii announced that he would retire from touring, but also stated that his final show would be “far from my last days in music”.
Avicii has taken to Instagram, sharing clips of him in the process of making his forthcoming third album.
Avicii is slated to release a new album in 2017, according to a representative from Avicii’s team in a statement to Billboard Magazine.
The rep also confirms Avicii’s split from long-time manager Ash Pournouri, stating, “2x Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Tim Bergling and his production/publishing entity Avicii Music AB have parted ways with manager Ash Pournouri, At Night Management. Bergling is signed to Universal Music Sweden and is expected to release an album next year.”
Avicii played his final live show at Ushuaïa Ibiza on Sunday (28th August), after announcing that he would retire from touring in a lengthy post on his website in March.
Yesterday, he opened up about his final live performance on Instagram, saying this is “far from my last days in the world of music”.
The Flying Dutch festival’s Swedish Journey event has been cancelled amidst uncertainty over whether Avicii would show up to perform, despite the fact that Steve Angello, Alesso, John Dahlbäck, Icona Pop and more were on the bill.
The festival was set to take place on Saturday 30th July at The Hague, Nijmegen, but Alda Events, who run the festival, issued a statement on their website last night (Thursday), announcing that it would not be going ahead.
After retiring from touring earlier this year, Avicii has cancelled his 2016 Las Vegas residency due to “personal reasons”.

Avicii has revealed another music video from his LP 'Stories', this time for new single 'Broken Arrows'.

It's based on the true story of Olympian Dick Fosbury, who pioneered a new jumping technique that became known as the Fosbury Flop.
