Avicii has already sold his documentary, ‘Stories,’ to BBC
Not even a day after making his rounds by publicly thanking all who have contributed most to the Avicii project and calling it quits, Tim Bergling has sold his coveted documentary, Stories, to BBC Worldwide.
Arguably one of the most important musical artists of our generation, Avicii made a name for himself in the early 2010s with game-changing originals including “Seek Bromance,” “My Feelings for You,” “Blessed,” and “Fade into Darkness.” His earlier remixes of “Set Me Free” and “Fade,” among others, also helped catapult the Swedish phenom into the dance music limelight. Though, it goes without saying that 2011’s “Levels” was and remains to be Tim Bergling’s sharpest weapon to date.
Directed by Levan Tsikurishvili, Stories will offer fans a rare and unprecedented look into the life of an electronic music icon, illustrating Avicii’s life since the release of his debut album, True, up until the present day. The uncensored film will reveal all: the good, the bad, and 2014’s health scare that forced the seminal producer to cancel a full year of tour dates in order to properly recover.
Salim Mukaddam, Director of Music, BBC Worldwide commented, “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.”
