New Delhi (India), Apr 6 (ANI): As Swedish DJ Avicii’s death anniversary is inching closer; his family has planned to bid him a farewell with a posthumous album release.
This summer, the team is coming up with a new album titled ‘TIM’, for Avicii’s government name was Tim Bergling.
The team also revealed that Tim was getting closer to the completion of the album before he passed away. Avicii left behind a number of nearly finished songs.

The album would have a collection of 16 songs out of which the single ‘SOS’ would be released on April 10.
The collections of the album would go to ‘Tim Bergling’ foundation to help prevent mental illness and suicide, reported TMZ.
