Before his death in April 2018 Avicii who's real name was Tim Bergling was working on a posthumous album and now it is ready to be released.
The posthumous album which will be called "Tim" is due to come out in June this year, with proceeds of the album to go to helping those who have mental health issues as well as the prevention of suicide. With the first single due to be released tomorrow (10/04).
Music producer Carl Falk said:
"I was trying to produce through someone else’s eyes and ears — someone who’s not here.
It was really hard not to criticize yourself the whole time. Would he like this? What would he have done?
Now, when I listen [to Avicii’s lyrics], I hear a lonely person with a lot of big emotions that he didn’t have enough people to talk to about.
I feel this music was his way of getting some of that out. That makes this a really important record. Whatever Tim wanted to say is here."
In order to finish off the tracks, the collaborators turned to detailed notes left behind on Avicii’s phone and computer. Some of these notes were reportedly written during the final days of Avicii’s life.
