The album’s lead single, titled ‘SOS’, will drop next week ahead of the album’s release in June. The last album Avicii released was 2015’s Stories, which featured hits like ‘Waiting For Love’ and ‘For A Better Day’.
In a statement, Avicii’s family explained that the DJ – real name Tim Bergling – was very close to finishing a new album before his sad passing.
“He left behind a collection of nearly finished songs, along with notes, email conversations and text messages about the music,” the statement reads.
“The songwriters that Tim was collaborating with on this album have continued the process to get as close to his vision as possible. Since Tim’s passing, the family decided not to keep the music locked away – instead they wanted to share it with his fans all around the world.”
They also released a video on YouTube diving into some of the behind-the-scenes of the album’s creation, which you can watch below.
TIM is out Friday, 6th June.
