Following the tragic loss of Avicii, his music shall continue to live on!

 

Prior to his passing, Avicii was working on new music and just last week, it was announced by Virgin EMI Records that a new album will be released in June.  The album is titled ‘TIM’ and as CNN writes, “‘TIM’ will be comprised of the songs Avicii was working on at the time of his death last year, which had been intended for a new album.”

‘TIM’ is Avicii’s third studio album and in a press statement that was made by Avicii’s music team, it read, “He left behind a collection of nearly finished songs, along with notes, email conversations and text messages about the music.  The songwriters that Tim 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.”

The first single off of ‘TIM’ has officially been released – it’s called ‘SOS’ and it features Aloe Blacc, the same artist who collaborated with Avicii on his 2013 single, Wake Me Up.  Aloe explains, “I feel like ‘SOS’ was a song that was probably ahead of its time for when he wrote it. He wrote these lyrics obviously about some of his battles and I think it’s a really important topic to approach and to share, especially with his visibility and his access to ears and hearts.  To give people the words to be able to say ‘I need help.’”

 

 

In addition to the new single, a behind-the-scenes video was also released, which gives fans a closer look at ‘TIM.’

 

 

Avicii’s ‘TIM’ album will be released on June 6!

 

It’s been exactly one year since the music world lost a talented soul like Avicii.  Our thoughts and prayers are sent to Avicii’s family during this difficult time.
