Avicii Releases “For A Better Day”

Following the huge international success of his latest single “Waiting For Love” – a track that claimed the #1 spot on iTunes in an incredible 22 countries – Avicii is proud to present 2 singles from hotly-anticipated new album, Stories. “For A Better Day” and “Pure Grinding” are scheduled for release on August 28th, to coincide with Stories being made available to pre-order for the first time. Keep your eyes on Avicii’s Instagram page where he is revealing the single artwork throughout this week.

To follow 2012’s True, a multi award-winning debut album that has sold over 5 million copies worldwide, is a challenge that Avicii has taken up with enthusiasm on his sophomore LP Stories. New singles “For A Better Day” – a lush, uplifting contemporary ballad – and the cinematic, hip-hop slanted “Pure Grinding” serve as perfect cases in point, with both showcasing Avicii’s ability to meld together both traditional and electronic styles in new ways within his own music.

Avicii ft. Alex Ebert – For A Better Day (Original Mix)

Produced by Avicii, aka Tim Bergling, “For A Better Day” was written by Bergling and Golden Globe-winning indie-fave Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros). The rhythmic “Pure Grinding” is a collision of hip-hop, soul and electronic sounds with vocals from Swedish songwriter/producer Kristoffer Fogelmark and U.S. based Def Jam artist Earl St. Clair.

Now established as one of dance music’s biggest global stars, his work on True – a record that also boasted 2013’s fastest-selling single in “Wake Me Up!” – has helped open up new possibilities for electronic artists and on “For A Better Day” and “Pure Grinding,” he continues to lead the way.

Avicii’s new album Stories is available to pre-order on August 28th.
