Any sort of official announcement about this track has been long coming. EO asked Nicky Romero about his previously dubbed ‘Fuck School’ collaboration with Avicii, which has now been pretty much 100% IDed as ‘Nicktim’ by Nicky himself via Twitter. His vague answer suggested that more work needed to going into mastering and finding a label home for the track, but now tastemaker Pete Tong finally announced the world premiere of the song yesterday during his Friday BBC1 radio show. This track has a lot of hype surrounding it and rightfully so. First played by Avicii during his set at the DC Armory in November, it has become a staple of both his and Nicky Romero’s sets. Others including the great and mighty David Guetta also incorporate the masterpiece into live plays. It might just be the ‘Levels’ of 2012. Release date still to come so watch here for updated info.
