Aviciis posthumous album to release in June

A posthumous album release entitled: Tim will be made available on JOOX, which provides fans of Avicii with one final opportunity to enjoy the music that he was yet to release before his untimely death.

Avicii's many musical collaborators, including producer Albin Nedler, helped finish the album, as the songs were said to be around 75% to 80% completed.

Coldplay's Chris Martin - who previously worked with Bergling - will sing on a song named "Heaven".

'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. The foundation also is active in climate change, nature conservation and protecting endangered species.

"Tim wanted to make a difference", the statement concludes. Avicii was perhaps best known for his hit singles "Levels", released in 2011, and "Wake Me Up" with Aloe Blacc, which was released in 2013.

The Swedish producer regularly appeared in the Top 5 of Forbes" "Highest-Paid DJs' lists.

Avicii retired from live performing in 2016 at the peak of his success, citing health reasons. His gallbladder and appendix had been removed in 2014. However, some friends said they'd sighted him intoxicated afterward, and criticising himself for it.

The album, which is touchingly titled Tim, is scheduled for a June 6 release, with the first track, "S.O.S.", landing on April 10 and offering fans a preview of this moving musical tribute.
