A new album by Avicii is set to be released in June this year.
A statement from Tim Bergling’s family reads, “When Tim Bergling passed away on April 20, 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 Time 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.”
In another section of the statement, the family confirm the album will be released on June 6, 2019, and a single from the album titled SOS will be released on April 10, 2019.
They also announced that all proceeds from the album will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation — which is a non-profit organisation set up in Avicii’s name, helping to treat mental illness and prevent suicide.
