Yahoo! Premieres Avicii’s “The Nights” Video!

Yahoo Music premiered the official video for “The Nights,” this morning. The video was produced and directed by and stars Rory Kramer, a friend of RAS’, who filmed an exuberant action-packed recollection of his own life on roller coasters, surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, balloon flying, etc. – living a life to be remembered.

Kramer calls himself a “Professional life liver”. On his website, he describes his philosophy: “I want others to look at my life and see how much fun I have and think, ‘If he can do all these awesome things then why can’t I?’” About the video, Avicii himself says, “The video for ‘The Nights’ is awesome. It’s exactly what I feel when I play the song live and it is the perfect representation of the lyrics.” Watch the video for “The Nights” below!

Avicii Releases ‘The Days / Nights EP’

As 2015 edges closer and the world anticipates the return of Avicii, new material has flowed more freely from the Swedish-based camp than ever before. Collaborations with Madonna, Wyclef Jean, and David Guetta have popped up recently after a long drought of new material while he was on the road. Fans can count on a follow-up to Avicii’s debut original studio album True next year, though details are virtually non-existent. What we do know, however, is that Avicii’s sound has continued to evolve and mature with each new release.

After a recent announcement that he would return to the stage as soon as February, the PRMD camp pulled the trigger in releasing Avicii’s The Days / Nights EP, a four track collection with original songs and fresh remixes. “The Nights,” a track featuring on the FIFA 15 video game, joins acoustically-aimed song “The Days” as the two original productions on the EP. Remixes from Henrik B and Felix Jaehn complete the tracklist. While the original productions are not new, extended mixes available through Beatport provide fans with unheard material with more elaborate instrumental sections.
