Avicii's Motivational "The Nights" Video
Avicii wants you to seize the day — and "The Nights"! Watch the DJ's uplifting video.

From violent lego videos to heartstrings-pulling nostalgia, Avicii always delivers visually. He takes things to the next level, however, for new single “Waiting For Love.” A week after dropping a beautifully animated lyric video, the Swedish DJ unveils an interactive, 360-degree video. What does that mean exactly? In a nutshell, you can change your POV by using an on-screen toggle set. That way you can see dancers jumping in and out of doors from all kinds of dizzying angles.

Directed by Kurt Hugo Schneider, the pioneering clip is an exceedingly fun way to spend four minutes. But if you really want to experience the full emotional punch of the track, stick with the gorgeous lyric video. (I’m still coming to terms with the dog dream sequence). “Waiting For Love,” which featured the vocals of UK singer Cherry Ghost and boasts co-production from Martin Garrix, is the first single from Avicii’s sophomore LP Stories. Watch both videos below.
