On 20 April, it will be three years since the famous Swedish DJ Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, passed away. A biography will soon be published summarising the short but highly charged life of the DJ who sadly took his own life at the age of 28.
Tim: The Official Biography of Avicii, written by journalist Måns Mosesson and published by Sphere in the United Kingdom, will include interviews with the DJ’s family, friends and colleagues. Mosesson has traveled to Miami, Ibiza, Los Angeles, and elsewhere to gather all the information needed to describe Avicii’s rise in the EDM world in the early 2010s.
“The book paints an honest picture of Tim and his search in life, not shying from the difficulties that he struggled with” says an official press release, also stating “It’s almost impossible to grasp how big an impact Tim Bergling had, both on the music industry at large and on his fans all over the world.
Måns Mosesson has traveled in Tim’s footsteps across the globe, from the streets of his childhood in Stockholm, to Miami, Ibiza and Los Angeles, in order to provide an in-depth and multifaceted picture of Tim’s life and works”.
All proceeds from the book will go directly to the Tim Bergling Foundation, which works to raise awareness, prevent suicide and address mental health issues.
Tim: The Official Biography of Avicii is scheduled for release on November 16.
