An official Avicii biography will be released next year.
The book about the late DJs life will be written by Swedish journalist Måns Mosesson, whose accolades include the Prix Italia documentary prize for journalism. Mosesson intends to celebrate a “musical visionary whose sense of melody made him beloved all over the world” while shedding light on “the difficulties that Tim [Bergling] experienced.”
Proceeds from the book's sales will go to the recently established Tim Bergling Foundation - a mental health charity set up by Avicii's family in his honour, initially aimed towards “supporting people and organisations working in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention.”
Avicii passed away in April 2018. His first posthumous single 'SOS' featuring Aloe Blacc was released earlier this month.
