A year ago this month, Avicii sadly died. His family recently revealed a posthumous album, Tim, paying tribute to their son was on its way. Reportedly, 90% of the LP was completed before the Swedish DJ passed away.
The lead single, titled “SOS,” has arrived and it features Aloe Blacc. The two memorably teamed up on “Wake Me Up.” That smash hit ushered in folktronica, aka folk EDM.
“I feel like ‘SOS’ was a song that was probably ahead of its time for when he wrote it. He wrote these lyrics obviously about some of his battles, and I think it’s a really important topic to approach and to share, especially with his visibility and his access to ears and hearts. To give people the words to be able to say ’I need help,’” said Aloe in a statement.
