Avicii Rep: Posthumous Album Reports Are 'Just Rumors'

Sean Eriksson


Representatives for late DJ/producer Avicii have debunked rumors that a posthumous album of his unfinished and unreleased music is currently planned for release.

Avicii's public relations representative Diana Baron says mistranslated reports from Swedish publication Aftonbladet have been wrongly circulated by English-language media outlets.

"Tim had been working on new material and had posted 9ishphotos and Instagram stories about his sessions this year," says Baron. "As of this moment, these stories about a scheduled release are just rumors coming from hopeful fans who loved Tim and his music."

Avicii passed away on April 20, 2018, of an apparent suicide. Some of the confusion may have stemmed from an April Variety interview with Geffen Records' executive Neil Jacobson, who said Avicii's next album was shaping up to be "his best music in years."
