Avicii’s biography has been published.

Initially set for release last year, Tim – The Official Biography of Avicii was written by Swedish journalist Måns Mosesson, who was given unique access to Tim’s own notes, as well as interviews with the producer’s family, friends and colleagues.

Published today (Tuesday, 30th November 2021) the 400-page, hardcover book aims to offer “an honest picture of Tim and his search in life, not shying from the difficulties that he struggled with.” The DJ and producer, real name Tim Bergling, died by suicide in 2018 aged 28-years-old.

“The intimate biography of the iconic DJ who was lost too soon,” reads the synopsis of the book. “Like a firework against the night sky, the DJ and producer Tim Bergling exploded onto the music scene. A musical visionary who, through his sense for melodies, came to define the era when Swedish and European house music took over the world.”

“But Tim Bergling was also an introverted and fragile young man who was forced to grow up at an inhumanly fast pace. After a series of emergencies resulting in hospital stays, he stopped touring in the summer of 2016. Barely two years later, he took his own life.”

Proceeds from the book will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation, a mental health charity set up by Bergling’s parents and peers to commemorate him and help others in need.

Last year, Tomorrowland named Avicii’s ‘Levels’ as the biggest track in the festival’s history. The Swedish EDM star’s legacy and influence on the world of electronic music endures, with hit ‘Wake Me Up’ being named as the highest charting dance track of the decade.
