BBC Worldwide have snapped the Avicii documentary ‘Stories’ which is set to be completed at the end of this year.
Just over a day after Avicii revealed that he was to quit touring and quite possibly, the music industry as a whole, his ‘Stories’ documentary which follows the Swedish artist around the world after the success of his ‘True’ album, all the way up to the current day, has been sold to BBC Worldwide and should be finished this year, probably when the artists finishes his touring dates.
It was a shock to say the least when this little bomb was dropped upon the music industry yesterday, however with his struggles through illness while also having to take many months off, Avicii is doing this for a good reason. Following in the footsteps of Swedish House Mafia, he is bringing a documentary to the scene with the same title as his last album ‘Stories’, and it’ll be a documentary not to be missed.
Avicii redefined the boundaries of contemporary dance music with his début 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. – Salim Mukaddam (BBC Worldwide)
Let’s just say a lot of fans will be waiting to watch this as ‘Stories’ showcases the years in Avicii’s life, from the high points of his high-selling album ‘True’, to the low points of his illnesses. This is the ‘True’ story of Avicii…. let’s hope he does make a comeback.
