Avicii’s Family Releases First Statement Following The Star’s Tragic Death

Avicii Family Statement

Four days on, and the void left in the world following Avicii‘s death continues to grow bigger and deeper. Unarguably one of modern dance music’s biggest superstars, Tim Bergling passed away on April 20 in Oman. And as we continue to learn more about the man himself and the future of the music he had been working on, the Swedish producer’s family has now finally issued a statement in light of their son/brother’s death.

We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother. We are so grateful for everyone who loved Tim’s music and have precious memories of his songs. Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honor Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world.”

We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way.

With love,
The Tim Bergling Family

While the cause of his death is yet to come to light, sources within the Oman police department have said they have “no criminal suspicion” in the Friday death. Additionally, two post-mortem examinations have also been conducted, with authorities ruling out foul play. As we await further updates, stay tuned for more details.
