music news 06/04/2019

Avicii's family have revealed that a posthumous album is arriving later this year.

Titled TIM, the release will consist of tracks Avicii was working on before he passed away almost one year ago.

“He left behind a collection of nearly finished songs, along with notes, email conversations and text messages about the music,” Avicii’s family said in a statement.

Aloe Blacc - responsible for the vocals on Avicii's hit 'Wake Me Up' - will sing on the album's first single 'SOS,' which is being released April 10.

The album is set to arrive June 6, with proceeds from the album sales going to the Tim Bergling Foundation, launched by Avicii’s family with a focus on mental illness awareness and suicide prevention.

Avicii died suddenly in April 2018 while on a trip to Muscat, Oman.
