Avicii lives on with the release of Forever, which features new music in celebration of his work and life.
Tim Bergling was one of the most celebrated electronic music artists of the late 2000’s. Primarily applauded for his work as a DJ and producer, he rose to prominence in 2011 with his Levels single
He began producing music at 18, which led to support from electronica heavyweights like Tiësto and Pete Tong, which contributed to his meteoric rise to stardom. In addition to creating several remixes for tracks from Little Boots, Robyn and Dizzee Rascal, he was acclaimed for his own singles, which included Bromance, My Feelings for You, Seek Bromance and most famously, 2011’s Levels, which reached platinum status in over 10 countries across the globe.
This Universal Music Group signed artist went on to be a perennial part of Top 40 countdowns and streaming music app playlists around the world with hits like I Could Be the One, which was a single collab with dance music DJ and producer Nicky Romero, Wake Me Up featuring the vocals of Aloe Blacc, Hey Brother, Addicted to You and A Sky Full of Stars, a collaboration with Coldplay.
2014 welcomed the arrival of an album that featured a series of remixes titled True: Avicii by Avicii, which was followed by his 2015 sophomore album Stories, featuring artists like Zac Brown, Wyclef Jean, Matisyahu and Martin Garrix.
This all cemented Tim Bergling’s status as global music phenomenon that transcended the boundaries of electronic music for wide-stream appeal.
The final album of Avicii
While he did continue to perform, he announced that he would retire from his work as a DJ and music producer in early 2016, stating persistent health concerns as the reason for his sudden departure from the media eye. He went on to perform what would be his final live set in Ibiza later that year before unexpectedly passing away in Muscat, Oman at 28 in April 2018.
Now fast forward to April 2019, a year after his passing, and brand new music is set to be released – so tune into the Avicii Forever playlist.
