Avicii Wastes No Time, Sells “Stories” to BBC Worldwide
Avicii wastes no time
Swedish dance music icon Avicii announced via Facebook that he would be retiring from touring indefinitely earlier today. While fans around the world was in shock with the news he wasted no time on cementing his retirement.
While his film “Stories” still a work in progress and yet to receive an official release date he has just sold the movie to BBC Worldwide. “Stories” follows Avicii’s journey as he climbed the ranks toward becoming an international music success. From his chart-topping singles and astoundingly popular albums.
Salim Mukaddam, Director of Music at BBC Worldwide, described his pleasure at acquiring what’s sure to be a widely sought-after film.
“Avicii redefined the boundaries of contemporary dance music with his debut album. His hits have gone gold and platinum in 25 countries, but little is known about the man behind the music. This film promises to give fans and music lovers an insight into the unbelievable world of a superstar artist, from the highs of playing to packed stadiums around the world to the lows of illness and struggling to get back to the stage. We are very excited to see the finished project later this year.”
Executive Producer of Sveriges Television Daniel Zackrisson revealed his own excitement for the film’s debut.
“We are extremely excited to work with one of Sweden’s biggest music exports, and the documentary will be something special in the world of music documentaries. The very unique footage will give an extraordinary look into Tim’s world as the artist Avicii. The very talented director, Levan, is spending an enormously amount of time with Tim, and the access to the – normally – so anonymous artist is giving a rare insight in the life of a super star.’’
OK Avicii I think we are surprised enough for one day. What a great career he has had!
