The hits just keep coming from Avicii (real name: Tim Bergling) even after his devastating death nearly a year ago. This time, it was his family and friends who shared with the whole world the first posthumous song from the late superstar.
"SOS" features the vocals of Aloe Blacc whom the genre-bending DJ worked with on his mega-hit single "Wake Me Up" from 2013. An accompanying visual was also released simultaneously with the track. It includes messages and personal stories from Avicii's fans from all over the world.
As earlier reported, an entire album of nearly-finished songs from Avicii will be released on June 6 of this year, and will simply be called Tim. Apparently, his team found a collection of it, along with notes, email conversations and text messages about the music, and used this to finish the album and get as close to his vision as possible.
