A year after his tragic death, there’s new Avicii music is coming our way. The late Swedish DJ’s family is releasing all the music that he was working on before his passing in April 2018. Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, left behind a collection of nearly unfinished songs and was close to completing a new album, his representatives said in a statement shared over the weekend.
“The family decided not to keep the music locked away. Instead they wanted to share it with his fans all around the world,” the statement read. “The songwriters that Tim was collaborating with on this album have continued the process to get as close to his vision as possible.”
A single, called SOS, will be released on April 10, and an album, called TIM, will be released later on early June.
All profits of the new Avicii music will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation, whose causes includes suicide prevention and mental illness.
The electronic dance music star was found dead in Oman at the age of 28. His family said at the time Avicii was a perfectionist who struggled with stress and who “could not go on any longer,” as the cry-for-help-inspired title of his first new track suggests.
