Avicii's posthumous album "Tim" was released yesterday. It has been a year since Avicii took his own life, however the album was largely completed before his passing. Vargas and Lagola, his co-producers and co-songwriters on the project, have described the painstaking process of creating music worthy of Avicii's name. On lead single "SOS," for example, they salvaged old MIDI data to duplicate notes exactly as Avicii played them.
This album is both heart breaking and beautiful in every way. The lyrics and melodies definitely reflect the thoughts of a troubled mind, in particular, the stunning track Heaven featuring Chris Martin.
I absolutely love Avicii and am so happy that we have been gifted this culmination of work by him, his family and team!
