Avicii has announced that he’ll be following fellow Swedish producers Axwell Λ Ingrosso out the At Night door, leaving manager Ash Pournouri’s firm, where he’s been since the start of his career.
No word yet on why he’s decided to depart after working with Ash for so long and seeing much success with him, but the DJ, who’s now retired from doing live shows, also revealed that he’ll be putting out a new album next year.
“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,” said a representative.
Though he may not be playing shows or festivals anymore, it’s nice to see that Avicii is still intent on remaining a strong presence in the industry by releasing new music at a fairly frequent rate. His last album, Stories, is only just over a year old, so to hear that we’ll be getting another full-length some time in 2017 should definitely please fans.
Avicii may be done with the gigs, but make no mistake about it, the Swede is still as active as ever in the studio, and we can’t wait to see what he’s got cooked up for us.
