Avicii was a Swedish musician, DJ, remixer and record producer. At the age of 16, Bergling began posting his remixes on electronic music forums, which led to his first record deal. He rose to prominence in 2011 with his single “Levels”.

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 April 10 and the album, titled ”TIM”, on June 6.

Avicii’s net proceeds from the album will go to the nonprofit Tim Bergling Foundation and the purposes it will work for, among other things, to prevent mental illness and suicide.
