Avicii to Release Debut Album ‘#TRUE’ in September
This morning Billboard announced, during an exclusive interview, that EDM superstar Avicii will be releasing his debut album this September. The album will be named True, which he quotes “being true to my sound but also to my own influences and musical preferences.”
The album’s release also marks the beginning of a new relationship between PRMD Music and Island Records, which will be co-releasing the set when it hits in the fall. Avicii’s manager Ash Pournouri is a founder of PRMD Music, which Bergling called the “most innovative artist-centered label out there.” Regarding Island’s involvement, Avicii said “the partnership… adds muscle and experience.”
This is amazing news. We heard several of these tracks when he premiered them during Ultra and we were also able to deliver you his latest single, Wake Me Up, first. Although there has been controversy over his new style, I really love that Avicii is testing the limits of dance music and we can only hope that the rest of his songs live up to the high expectations he has set for himself.
