Music video

An official lyric video was also released on YouTube by the official Avicii Vevo channel. In the video, an artist (later confirmed as INO), spray-paints the lyrics of "The Days" in black against a white wall. Near the end of the video, a pan-out reveals the lyrics creating a portrait of Avicii, which is subsequently covered with splashes of coloured paint by the artist.

As of August 2016, the lyric video has been viewed more than 100 million times.
