Posthumous Avicii album Tim to be released in June
The posthumous Avicii album will feature vocals from Aloe Blacc and Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
In 2018 the world trembled in hearing of the tragic passing of one of EDM’s brightest stars, Tim Bergling aka Avicii.
Although he loved making music, the stress that comes with the business side of fame was too much to handle, causing the young talent to take his life at the ripe age of 28.
With that being said, Tim had a mountain of unreleased tracks he was working on before his death, leading his family to team up with his friend’s and collaborators to finish the album he was working on.
After announcing the release of a posthumous Avicii album last year, it appears that Tim is landing on June 2019, with the lead single S.O.S featuring Aloe Blacc dropping on April 10.
In 2017 the DJ himself teased the new music included on Tim in a letter to fans:
“Last year I quit performing live, and many of you thought that was it. But the end of live never meant the end of Avicii or my music. Instead, I went back to the place where it all made sense — the studio,” he wrote at the time, according to Billboard. “The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.”
In addition to releasing Tim, the Berling family have also formed the Tim Bergling foundation, which “will initially focus on supporting people and organizations working in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention,” the press statement said.
“Tim wanted to make a difference,” the statement continued. “Starting a foundation in his name is our way to honor his memory and continue to act in his spirit.”
The posthumous Avicii album will be released in June, watch out for the single S.O.S coming out 10 April.
