Announcing his live retirement last year, Avicii said at the time: “My path has been filled with success but it hasn’t come without its bumps. I’ve become an adult while growing as an artist, I’ve come to know myself better and realize that there’s so much I want to do with my life. I have strong interests in different areas but there’s so little time to explore them.
“My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I’m grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist.”
He added: “I will however never let go of music – I will continue to speak to my fans through it… One part of me can never say never, I could be back… but I won’t be right back.”
