Boasting the fastest selling single of 2013 in �Wake Me Up!�, which also charted at number 1 in a mammoth 84 territories, as well as top 10 follow singles �You Make Me� and �Hey Brother�, �True� confirmed Avicii�s status as one of dance music�s truly global stars. Fusing charging dance rhythms with folk-esque riffs and vocals, a facet of his music that has rapidly become his hallmark, as well as displaying a stunning adeptness for melody, his is a sound that has galvanized charts across the world.
Now, fresh for 2014, Avicii is set to offer up an entirely re-contextualized version of �True� that delivers the album in a new, uniquely exciting light. Approached from an �Avicii by Avicii� standpoint, each rework sees him toy with original tracks in an innovative format that showcases not only craftsmanship but a remarkable willingness to experiment and explore.
Showcasing a multitude of dance floor styles is thus at the forefront of what makes this such an exciting body of music. The harmonic, big room charm of �Wake Me Up�, which works a rolling, bass-heavy twist on the original is a bold contrast to the synth-rich, disco-inspired rework of �You Make Me� but one that defines Avicii�s prodigious musical outlook. A recurring theme throughout the album, further exemplified by the juxtaposition of storming, club-ready edit of �Hey Brother� with a a brilliantly left-field, down-tempo remix of �Shame On Me�, �Avicii by Avicii� is a conceptual masterstroke. Fresh and exciting, it manages to retain the personality of �True�, whilst simultaneously extending the appeal of what made �True� such a groundbreaking debut album.
