Eight months later, we still mourn the loss of Avicii who committed suicide in April 2018. Fans have anxiously awaited more details of the Avicii: True Stories documentary, which follows four years of Avicii’s life up to the end of 2017. Now, we have confirmation the highly anticipated doc will finally make its way back to Netflix in a few weeks. The Guardian confirmed the doc will release on US, UK and Australia Netflix on December 28.
The documentary includes footage from four years of Avicii’s life, including touring, traveling and producing music in his studio. The doc famously includes Avicii admitting “It will kill me,” referencing his exhaustive tour life. It also includes an ominous quote from his ex-manager Ash Pournouri: “Tim is going to die, with all the interviews, radio tours and playing. He’ll drop dead.”
Director Levan Tsikurishvili gave details about the doc in The Guardian story. Addressing the doc’s rocky release so far, Tsikurishvili clarified his film had not been intended to release in full around when Avicii died. Speculation ran amok after the doc “disappeared” from Netflix, but it had only fully released on Netflix in Western Europe up to that point.
Leading up to the Netflix release, Avicii: True Stories will screen in LA on December 14 to qualify for Oscar consideration, and in New York on December 21. Watch the trailer for the doc below:
