Tim “Avicii” Bergling was working on his third album when he passed away at 28 years old on April 24, 2018.
Soon, the world will hear the release of the first single from the album he left behind – nearly an exact year after his death. In June, the full posthumous album, TIM, will be shared with all of us. Avicii stated himself that he believed these new songs were the best ones he has written in years.
In an interview with Dagens Nyheter, a Swedish Magazine, Tim’s father Klas Bergling discusses the impact that his death had on him, and the world of music as a whole. He shares:
“EVERYONE ASKS ME IF IT DOESN’T FEEL BETTER NOW, AFTER A YEAR. THEY DO IT WITH GOOD INTENTIONS. BUT IT’S WORSE. THERE IS ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE NOW. I MISS HIM IN A MUCH DEEPER WAY.”
Avicii’s body was discovered last year at his villa in Oman. His death came as an utter shock to the world, but even more so to the people close to him who thought he was “doing better”. We have learned about the excessive pressure from touring that Avicii faced, as well as the medical complications he dealt with as a result of alcohol and prescription medication.
