Avicii album set for release in June

Avicii album set for release in June”

With a new Avicii album on its way, we were treated to the first posthumous single from the late-DJ on Wednesday, April 10 when the new single "SOS" dropped.

With both of his studio albums topping the charts in his home country, Avicii released a number of classic tracks that quickly saw him considered one of the greatest producers of his era.

When Tim died in Oman on April 20, 2018, the music was 90 percent ready.

Listen to the new track and watch a behind the scenes mini-documentary about "SOS" below.

The album is set to feature contributions from Coldplay's Chris Martin, Cal Falk, Albin Nedler, Kristoffer Fogelmark and others. "I just get paralysed by talking about it, but everything was about completing Tim's version", Fogelmark says.

Avicii SOS

Blacc said: "I feel like 'SOS' was a song that was probably ahead of its time for when he wrote it". Blacc's vocals are accentuated by Avicii's stunning production style and work in ideal synergy with each other, ending with lyrics "Can you hear me SOS, help me put my mind to rest".

The album will feature 16 tracks that the producer had almost completed at the time of his death, aged 28, last April.

Only a couple of days ago, a press release from the Avicii's family and his team, announced the release of Tim's new album.

"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". All proceeds from his posthumous releases directly benefit the Tim Bergling Foundation that has been formed with a focus on mental illness and suicide prevention. "To establish a Foundation in his name is our way to honor his memory and his spirit continue".
