By | Published on Tuesday 24 April 2018


The family of producer Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, have issued a statement, following his death last week.

“We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother”, they said in a statement issued to Billboard. “We are so grateful for everyone who loved Tim’s music and have precious memories of his songs”.

“Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honour Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world”, they continued. “We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way”.

Bergling was found dead at a resort in Oman last Friday, where he had been holidaying with friends. The cause of death is yet to be determined, but police have ruled out foul play.
