Released on the 13th of September, 2013, ‘True’ is the debut studio album by Swedish producer Avicii. Avicii said that, sonically, the album would move away from his earlier house music sound and incorporate elements of other genres such as country music which was evident by his single ‘Wake Me Up’. This iconic album debuted at #2 on the UK charts and peaked within the top ten of over ten countries. With hit singles such as ‘Wake Me Up’, ‘Hey Brother’, ‘You Make Me’, ‘Addicted To You’, among others being featured on this album, many rank this as one of the best in the past decade.
Just a little over 3 years ago, on April 20th, 2018, the music industry stood still as news broke regarding the passing of Swedish legend Avicii. An icon who broke multiple records and was held as many DJ’s biggest inspirations, Avicii became a household name due to his creativity and talents within the studio. Although he may be gone, the legacy he left behind with his music will never be forgotten.
