Avicii will become the first EDM act to headline New York City's prestigious Radio City Hall when he plays a show there in September.
The 22-year-old told Rolling Stone, "It's unbelievable that I'm going to play there... It's really more of a prestigious thing for me.
"It'll be cool that no other DJ has been there before which makes it even more, you know, like a fun thing to do and something that a lot of people I don't think would have expected."
He also revealed to the magazine that he is planning to return to the studio "in a couple of weeks", with "about 10 or 12" new tracks that he aims to release later this year or early 2013.
"There's no lack of music," he said. "I have a lot of solo releases lined up. There's going to be a lot of songs."
