What is the Meaning Behind Avicii's New EP Name?

Avicii retired from performing last year citing personal and health-related reasons, but vowed he would still be releasing music and he has held true to his promise.

After teasing fans over the last few weeks with clips of new songs on social media Avicii has officially announced his new EP.

It’s self-titled, but with an alternate spelling of his name, Avici.

That might seem inconsequential, but that spelling is actually a Buddhist word for the lowest level of hell where the greatest sinners can be reborn.

Some fans are theorizing that it’s a metaphor for his spiritual rebirth since retiring from touring.

Avicii’s new EP arrives drops Thursday.
