Avicii’s posthumous album is set to be released during the summer.
The DJ died in April 2018 and had been working on a number of songs for an album before his death.
Avicii’s family have now announced that his album, titled ‘TIM’ will be released, after they used “notes, email conversations and text messages about the music” to complete it.
His family asked people who had previously worked with the DJ for help in completing the album and released a statement in which they said: “When Tim Bergling passed away on 20 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 10 April and the album, titled TIM, on 6 June. Avicii’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.”
