Avicii Posthumous Album To Be Released This Summer
It has been confirmed that Avicii's posthumous album will be released this summer
The DJ's family announced that the album, titled 'TIM' will be released after they used "notes, email conversations and text messages about the music" to complete the album that was almost finished prior to his death.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead in his hotel in Oman in April of last year at the age of 28 and was later buried in his hometown of Stockholm.
Tim's family asked other people who had worked with the DJ and producer to help them complete the piece of work in memory of Avicii. In a statement, they said: "When Tim Bergling passed away on 20th April 2018, he was close to completing a new album.
"He left behind a collection of nearly finished songs, along with notes, email conversations and text messages about the music. The songwriters that Tim was collaborating with on this album have continued the process to get as close to his vision as possible.
"Since Tim's passing, the family decided not to keep the music locked away - instead they wanted to share it with his fans all around the world.
"The single 'SOS' will be released on 10th April and the album, titled TIM, on the 6th of June. Avicci's net proceeds from the album will go to the non-profit Tim Bergling Foundation and the purposes it will work for, among other things, to prevent mental illness and suicide."
