House music star Avicii only set out to make singles, but was surprised to find himself inspired to record a full album.
Avicii never intended to release an album.
The 'Wake Me Up' chart-topper was hoping his hit dance singles would bring him fame rather than putting out a full-length record, until he realised it would be a more fulfilling way to challenge himself.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''Recording albums doesn't make sense in some ways, and I didn't think I'd ever do one. I might as well release singles, because it's an easier way to make a quick buck.
''But I had three months off in Los Angeles recently - the first time off I've had for six years - and I started thinking, 'What more can I do?' ''
The Swedish house music star - whose real name is Tim Bergling - is putting out his very first album, 'True', as well as single 'You Make Me' this week.
He said: ''I met Nile last year in New York and we said we'd work together. we've written six more songs since the album finished as we vibe like crazy off each other. Nile is the funkiest man I know - he breathes swag.''
His journey has not come without hard work and hustle, and 'At. Long. Last. A$AP.' is certainly his best work so far.
