A posthumous Avicii album will be released this summer

Avicii first posthumous single will be released next week and a full album will be out in June.

The nonprofit organization was started following Avicii's untimely death to raise money for suicide prevention and organizations dedicated to fighting mental illness.

The Swedish DJ, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was working on pieces before his death in Muscat, Oman, in 2018.

His publicist confirmed that he died almost a year ago on Friday 20 April, 2018.

According to the extensive feature in The New York Times, the new album will be called Tim, and it "advances his legacy of exploration by embracing psychedelia, Arabian music, sounds of the Caribbean and more".

TIM is due to be released on Thursday, 6 June 2019.

The family did not want to keep the last music made by Avicii, who died on April 20, 2018 at the age of 28 locked away from fans.

A statement released at the time of announcement confirms the charity will work in climate change, development assistance, nature conservation, and endangered species. Proceeds from the album's sales will go to the foundation.

His family said in a statement: "Tim wanted to make a difference". The artist scored a No. 4 hit on 2013's Billboard 200, with 'Wake Me Up'.

Bergling had a long struggle with alcohol addiction.

Avicii retired from live performing in 2016 at the peak of his success, citing health reasons. He subsequently had his gallbladder and appendix removed.
