Avicii's posthumous album to be released during the summer

Avicii died in 2018 aged 28

The album, which is touchingly titled Tim, is scheduled for a June 6 release, with the first track, "S.O.S.", landing on April 10 and offering fans a preview of this moving musical tribute.

Proceeds from the upcoming album will benefit the Tim Bergling Foundation, which focuses on supporting people and organizations in the field of mental illness and suicide prevention.

According to Pitchfork, the family said: "When Tim Bergling passed away on April 20, 2018, he was close to completing a new album".

The Story Behind The Album "TIM" is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the late musician's upcoming album.

The new material comes from a "wealth of unreleased material" that Avicii was working on before his "apparent suicide" in April 2018, including a song called "Heaven", which Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin sings for. They want to share his upcoming music with his fan-base from all over the globe as a way of commemorating him.

His family said in a statement: "Tim wanted to make a difference". His other hit singles include "Wake Me Up", "Hey Brother", "The Nights", and "Without You".

The Swedish producer regularly appeared in the Top 5 of Forbes" "Highest-Paid DJs' lists.

It was known that Bergling suffered from acute pancreatitis - with alcohol to blame. After having his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014, he canceled a series of shows in an attempt to recover. Following several highly successful years, Bergling retired from touring in 2016, citing health reasons.
