Avicii fans can now pre-order the official biography of the late dance music legend, which could offer new perspectives on the life of one of the most virtuoso EDM artists of all time.
According to the biography's editor, the biography "paints an honest picture" of Avicii before his tragic death in 2018. The author Måns Mosesson has fleshed out the book based on excerpts from interviews with Avicii's family, friends and colleagues in the music industry.
Avicii committed suicide at the age of 28 after grappling with mental health issues, largely stemming from a grueling touring schedule that reportedly included up to 250 shows a year. He is revered as one of the most gifted melody creators in the world and is responsible for a number of the most popular generational anthems in the EDM genre, such as Levels, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
Little, Brown and Company
It seems that the electronic music community is reaching for straws to shine brightly on the star of Avicii's legacy. A new documentary about his life is slated for release in 2023 and includes unprecedented archive footage and interviews with the artist himself.
Proceeds from the sale of Tim: The Official Biography of Avicii will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation, a charity founded by Avicii's parents in memory of their son to support research and suicide prevention efforts.
