Vinyl of Avicii classic ‘Levels’ sells for $563

With more and more music lovers preferring to collect vintage items like vinyl records than MP3s, CDs or tapes in recent times, one particular item broke the bank in excess of over half a thousand dollars. ‘Levels’, the 2011 EDM anthem made by Avicii, is widely considered as one of – if not THE greatest – dance records ever made, and now somebody has paid $563 for the vinyl version from popular website, Discogs.

With the one year anniversary of Tim‘s death growing closer by the day, it’s nice to know that the world is still keeping the Swede in their thoughts. In fact, the sale means Avicii now holds the record for the most expensive dance vinyl ever sold, beating the $520 that was paid for Daft Punk‘s ‘Discovery’.

Let’s take a moment to relive this timeless classic below, and quite frankly, to thank Avicii for gifting us with perhaps the most iconic dance track ever made.
