Avicii’s Highly Anticipated Posthumous Album ‘TIM’ Is Finally Here

Avicii TIM
Late producer and unarguably one of modern dance music’s all time greats, Avicii‘s highly anticipated posthumous album, ‘TIM‘ is finally out for the world to experience. After announcing his retirement from touring, he wrote: “I will however never let go of music. I will continue to speak to my fans through it.” And most assuredly, his final LP marks its arrival to serve that purpose.

Tim Bergling’s new music is as fresh and inventive as ever and continues his legacy as one of the most beloved and respected figures in music. Before his untimely passing last year, he had completed several of the 12 tracks on the album, including the fan-favourite ‘Heaven‘. Tim and Chris Martin wrote and recorded the mesmerizing record in 2014, with Tim producing the final version in 2016 – it hasn’t been touched since. With the exception of the last verse which was added after Bergling’s death, ‘Heart Upon My Sleeve‘ featuring Imagine Dragons was finished.

Other tracks were 90% complete and final work on them was performed by a trio of production teams who had collaborated with Bergling through his career, co-wrote many of the new songs with him, and closely followed the detailed instructions he had left behind. The net proceeds from the album will go to the non-profit Tim Bergling Foundation which benefits organizations that support mental health issues, suicide prevention and education, wildlife conservation and other issues that Bergling had an interest in and passion for.
