The 28-year-old producer and DJ Avicii took his own life in April of 2018, leaving behind bits, pieces and notations toward a project he could never finish. Avicii's surviving parents, friends and collaborators decided to share his final vision with fans, and careful consideration of his lyrics, musical footprints and notes left behind have led to Tim, the 12-track posthumous album title after Avicii's true name.
Tim Bergling was one of, if not the brightest force in the electronic dance music explosion of the 2010s. His song "Levels" was an instant classic, followed by cross-genre Hot 100 hits "Wake Me Up," "Hey Brother," "SOS" and more. His music and lyrics transcended the usual party cliches, digging deeper into our shared modern consciousness with music videos that dared to question the status quo.
