He hit the top ten in more than fifteen countries and topped the Australian, Swedish, Danish and US charts.

In August 2017 he released a six track EP and said: "I'm really excited to be back with music once again. It has been a long time since I released anything and a long time since I was this excited over new music!

My focus on this first EP of the album was to get a mix of new and old songs: some that fans have been asking about and waiting for mixed with brand new songs that they have never been heard before!"

Avicii collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry and remixed their songs, working with the likes of Madonna, Robyn, Major Lazer, Daft Punk and Coldplay.

Just days before his death, Avicii was nominated for a Billboard Music Award in the category 'top dance/electronic album' for his EP Avicii (01).

He is nominated alongside The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, Kygo and Odesza.
