SOS, the first single from the forthcoming posthumous Avicii album ‘Tim’ is here. It features production by Avicii, Album Nedler, Kristoffer Fogelmark and singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc.
All net proceeds from the record will go to the nonprofit founded in his name—the Tim Bergling Foundation—which works to prevent mental illness and suicide.
“I feel like ‘SOS’ was a song that was probably ahead of its time for when he wrote it,” Blacc said in a statement. “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.’
