Avicii might have just rolled out his new EP, but that doesn’t mean the “Levels” hit maker will be relaxing anytime soon. The producer sat down with BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong to discuss the release of AVĪCI, his self titled six-track product.
As indicated by the "(01)" that follows the title “AVĪCI,” Avicii confirmed in the interview that the latest EP is only the first in a series of successive music to follow, a group that will feature more EPs, and possibly even a full album.
Avicii remarks “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! My focus on this first EP of the album was to get a mix of new and old songs, some that fans have been asking about/waiting for mixed with brand new songs that they haven't heard before!” Avicii noted that his EP bundle will be released in three volumes, hence the “(01)” in AVĪCI’s name.
Yet when it came to live shows, Avicii revealed that he was still hesitant to return to the decks— “I want to feel normal for a while before I make any decision to go back,” Aviciii stated, indicating that while a flood of new music may be primed to saturate the dance music genre in coming months, that doesn’t necessarily mean an Avicii headlining tour will materialize with the same speed.
