Avicii’s posthumous album to be released in June


It seems that late Swedish DJ Avicii was working on a new album when he passed away. It has been confirmed by his family and producers that a posthumous album created by Avicii is set to be released this June.

The New York Times reported that the 16-track album will be titled TIM, which is after Avicii’s real name, Tim Bergling.

The first track off the album, S.O.S. will be released on April 10.

This new album is a product of the “wealth of unreleased material” that Avicii was working on before his “apparent suicide” in April 2018. Included in the set of materials is a song called Heaven where Coldplay frontman Chris Martin sings for.

Additionally, the family announced the launch of the Tim Bergling Foundation, which aims to support mental health and suicide prevention groups. The net profits of the new album will go to the foundation.

Avicii’s rise to fame started in 2011 with the hit song Levels. It was followed by Wake Me Up, Hey Brother, and Without You.

In 2012, Avicii was hospitalized due to acute pancreatitis caused by excessive drinking.

In 2016, he went on a touring break.

On April 20, 2018, Avicii was found dead in Oman.
