Superstar DJ and Producer Avicii's final album, TIM, which he was working on when he passed away at the age of 28, has now been released.

To coincide with the release, the artists and collaborators behind each track have taken part in a video series, which documents how the album was completed following the star's tragic death.

Earlier this year, Tim’s family announced the final recordings and collaborations that he was working on, prior to his death, were to be brought together and released as an album on 6 June 2019. 

“When Tim Bergling passed away on April 20, 2018, he was close to completing a new album. He left behind a collection of nearly finished songs, along with notes, email conversations and text messages about the music."

You can check out how each track from Avicii’s final album, TIM, was created with some unseen footage, featuring many close friends and collaborators that were involved in the process.
