The Playlist: Avicii

When we partied for New Year's, it was all about Hey Brother. The summer previous was filled with the folk-borrowed Wake Me Up. And then, with the skiing in Bulgaria – the glorious Addicted to You.
All Avicii. And all brilliantly uplifting dance music sensitive to different genres.
The Swedish-born DJ – real name Tim Bergling – hit the 'big time' in 2010 with hit singles Levels and Bromance and huge collaborations with the likes of Tïesto, Bob Sinclair and David Guetta.
The album 'True' is full of gems, including You Make Me (a bit of a 'banger') and Hope There's Someone alongside the tracks I have already mentioned. The music video for the aforementioned Addicted To You is beautiful, and so empowering (there's a touch of Thelma and Louise about it).
Happy listening, and have a lovely weekend! R x
