It's been a super-busy 12 months for Avicii. And considering he only started touring this year, it's not hard to see why.
"My management finally let me out!" he grins.
And what a year of living the dream it has proven to be for the young Swede. "I've fulfilled so many aspirations - headlined for Sensation, played main stages at festivals, been doing great studio work for solo stuff still to come out," says Avicii, aka Tim Bergling. "I've remixed so many big artists and collaborated with Tiësto and Sebastian Ingrosso to name a couple, plus had worldwide hits with two different tracks."
Since he's been set free to trot the globe, he's been able to bounce creativity off some of his most admired producers.
"I've exchanged ideas and experiences with so many talented artists to whom I'm so grateful."
His next big plans are for the release of his solo work.
"All I can say is, this year is not over and we have great dreams still to realise!"
