An unexpected gallbladder surgery might have sidelined Avicii from performing at Ultra Music Festival this year, but his recent health issues won’t stop him from producing another album. In fact, the Swedish superstar confirmed via Twitter that he’ll be returning to work on his sophomore effort after a couple days off.

His debut album True caught many fans by surprise with its distinctive sound, but achieved solid commercial success and critical reception. Wake Me Up alone may have driven much of the additional acclaim to the rest of the album, as most fans who were initially uncertain have seemed to come around, leading to a remix of the album by its original producer. What’s to come on his second original album is still unknown, but Avicii has proven himself as an innovator and a game-changer, so excitement (and expectations) will certainly be high.
