Avicii's third studio album, Tim, is finally out. The posthumous LP, named for the producer's birth name (Tim Bergling), is the product of a community of close friends and collaborators coming together to finish what he started before his 2018 death. Now that it's arrived in all its majestic splendor, we can see that the mission has been completed. The world has a final chapter in Avicii's trilogy to consume.
At 12 tracks, Tim acts as a follow-up to his 2015 album, Stories. It finds Avicii at his most comfortable, working with frequent collaborators like Aloe Blacc and Vargas & Lagola. Imagine Dragons and others also appear, and you'll find the previously released Blacc collaboration "SOS" on it, which arrived with a heartwarming visual featuring fans explaining what Avicii's music did for them.
A few months ago, Avicii's family and collaborators revealed in an interview that the LP was "75 to 85 percent" done and that it would incorporate elements of "psychedelia, Arabian music, sounds of the Caribbean and more." Now, you can finally hear what that sounds like.
