An alternate version of Avicii: True Stories has been shared online.
Directed by Swedish filmmaker Levan Tsikurishvili, Avicii: True Stories followed Tim Berling’s rapid rise to fame, thanks to hits such as ‘Levels’ and ‘Wake Me Up’, while also charting the toll it took on both his mental and physical health. Suffering from problems with alcohol to help cope with his discomfort in the limelight, he’d already given up touring prior to his death by suicide aged 28-years-old.
Now, a new version of the 2017 documentary has surfaced online, containing previously unseen videos of Bergling. Shared via The Avicii Archives, a fan-founded YouTube channel, the “scrapped” version of True Stories features archive footage with a focus on the late EDM star’s songwriting process.

An official Avicii biography, which was initially set for release in 2020, has now been confirmed for a 2021 release date.
Discogs recently revealed that a 12″ copy of Avicii’s breakthrough track ‘Levels’ has sold for $1,764, as part of a feature looking at the 30 most expensive items sold via the online music marketplace.
