2016 울트라 코리아에 꼭 가야하는 이유 feat.아비치
한시간 전에 아비치 페이스북에 엄청 엄청 장문의 편지(?)가 올라왔네요 Hello world,
Thank you for letting me fulfil so many of my dreams. I will be forever grateful to have experienced and accomplished all that I have with the help of the team around me and my beloved fans. Thank you to all my peers in the business for building a new movement that took the world by storm and I was lucky enough to be in the middle of it. Thank you to all my partners through the years who believed in what I have created and wanted to amplify my work to a truly global presence.
First and foremost thank you to my brother and partner Ash, its truly been a crazy run and its only been possible through our collaborative efforts, yin and yang, brother to brother manager to artist. I will always appreciate this road with you no matter where it leads from here. I could write so much more but our journey is far from finished. Thank you to everyone at At Night, a special thanks to everyone who has been a part of the team since day one and without your hard dedicated work I wouldn't be here. Thank you especially to Carl Vernersson, Filip Holm, Marcus Lindgren, Victor Lee and Panos Ayassotelis.
Thank you to the teams of Johnny Tenander, Per Sundin, Max Hole, Neil Jacobson and Joakim Johansson in no particular order. Your loyalty and hard work on the label and publishing fronts have allowed me to always feel like we have had someone backing us in your court, and that has given me the musical confidence I've needed. Thank you. Thank you Robb Harker, Malik Adunni, David Brady, Andrew Mckeough, Rob Woo and Felix Alfonzo - you helped introduce touring to me in as much of a functional way possible for a kid my age and my road could have been alot darker if it wasnt for your personal support at such a crucial point. Thank you Semi Baddredine for all your personal support, talks and help in me growing up. I have a weird feeling i could be dead If it wasn't for you and I will always love and support you.
Thank you to Ciara Davy, Michael "Curly" Jobson and the MJM team, Harry Bird and Charlie Alves for making my touring years amazing during the best of times and durable during the worst. I hope we will find a way to keep on working together. Thank you to all artists, musicians and songwriters who have helped me develop musically and personally, the list is long but there is no one I've worked with where I haven't learnt something.
A huge thank you to all my friends in the industry. Thank you Jesse Waits at XS for having been such a huge friend to me and a rock in stormy waters. Also huge thanks in no particular order to Jonathan Schwartz, Austin Leeds, Pete Moutso, Dave Grutman, Noah Tepperberg, Jason Strauss, Sean Christie, Carlos Correal, Rob Fernandez, Eddie Dean, Adam Russakoff, Mike Satsky, Trecia Laird, Lisa Pillette, Marcella Barrett, Zoe Stainsby, Joe Bellioti, Yann and Romain Pissenem, John and Paul in Ibiza, Fricko, Sean, Marcus, Awat, Lucas, Ludde, Calle, Johannes, Filip, Levan, Otto, Oliver, my brothers David and Anton, my sister Linda, My parents Anki and Klas. Thank you to all the ones I didn't include in this moment. There has been too many people to mention in one sitting that had an impact on me in this industry and Im sorry I'm forgetting some of you. But last but not least thank you to every fan who has ever bought a ticket or snuck in, bought a song or downloaded it, commented on posts or hated at them. Its your thoughts and ideas about the music that helped me evolve and I do owe everything I have to you.
My path has been filled with success but it hasn’t come without its bumps. I’ve become an adult while growing as an artist, I’ve come to know myself better and realize that there’s so much I want to do with my life. I have strong interests in different areas but there’s so little time to explore them.
Two weeks ago, I took the time to drive across the U.S. with my friends and team, to just look and see and think about things in a new way. It really helped me realize that I needed to make the change that I’d been struggling with for a while.
My choices and career have never been driven by material things, although I’m grateful for all the opportunities and comforts my success has availed me. I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist.
I will however never let go of music - I will continue to speak to my fans through it, but I’ve decided this 2016 run will be my last tour and last shows. Let’s make them go out with a bang! One part of me can never say never, I could be back ...but I won’t be right back.
Yours forever, Tim Bergling / Avicii
P.S. I've got a new phone so you can text me re all this +46769436383. Please bare with me I might not be super quick to reply. X 넘나 길지만 앞부분은 그리 중요하게 안읽어봐도 될 것 같고요. 뒷부분이 중요한데 요약해보자면
지금까지의 커리어는 성공적이었다. 성인으로써 그리고 아티스트로써 성장을 하였으며 내 자신에 대해서 더 잘 알게 되면서 내 인생에서 하고싶은 일들이 아주 많다는 것을 인식하게 되었다.
다른 분야에도 깊은 관심이 있지만 시도해보기에는 시간이 너무 적다.
2주 전, 새로운 길에 대하여 생각해 볼 시간을 가지기 위해서 친구들과 팀과 미국을 가로질러 드라이브를 하였는데 이 시간은 내가 한동안 힘겨워하고 있던 것들에서부터 변화를 할 필요가 있다는 것을 느끼게하는데 정말 도움이 많이 되었다.
나의 성공이 내게 가져다주었던 모든 기회와 편안함에 감사하지만 내 선택과 커리어는 물질적인 것에 의해서 움직여 진 적은 한번도 없다.
내가 전 세계를 여행하며 공연을 할 수 있도록 축복받았다는 것은 알지만 아티스트 이면의 진짜 사람으로써의 나의 삶은 너무 조금밖에 남지 않았었다.
하지만 나는 음악을 절대 그만두지는 않을 것이다 - 음악을 통해서 계속하여 나의 팬들에게 이야기할 것이지만, 2016년이 나의 마지막 투어이자 마지막 쇼가 될 것이다. 그러니 함께 즐겨보자!
절대 돌아오지 않는다고 말할 수 는 없지만...지금 당장은 아닐 것 같다.
그리고 아비치가 새 핸드폰 번호도 공개했어요 +46769436383
다행히도(?) 올 해 아비치가 2016 울트라 코리아를 통해서 내한이 예정되어 있었는데요. 한동안을 보지못할 아비치의 마지막을 보러 꼭 가야겠네요 ㅠㅠ!
