Avicii‘s highly-anticipated first posthumous single has arrived. The track, which is titled “S.O.S.,” features “Wake Me Up” singer Aloe Blacc. It will appear on the Swedish artist’s upcoming posthumous album, TIM, which drops June 6.

“When Tim Bergling passed away on April 20, 2018, he was close to completing a new album,” the press release says. “The songwriters that Tim was collaborating with on this album have continued the process to get as close to his vision as possible.”

“Since Tim’s passing, the family decided not to keep the music locked away – instead they wanted to share it with his fans all around the world.”

Avicii’s net income from the album will go to the nonprofit Tim Bergling Foundation, which among other things, helps prevent mental illness and suicide.

Tropkillaz Recruit Aloe Blacc for New Anthem, ‘Milk & Honey’


Brazilian DJ/producer duo Tropkillaz have dropped their highly anticipated new single featuring Aloe Blacc, “Milk & Honey.”

It’s the lead track off the group’s upcoming debut album and marks a change of pace from their usual bass-heavy style to a more pop-driven sound.

As its name suggests, “Milk & Honey” is about working hard to achieve success. “I think many people can identify with the song,” Tropkillaz member Laudz said in the press release. “The song deals with hustling, a rags to riches mentality and improving your life — which is a priority for many, regardless of where they come from.”
