AVICII’S POSTHUMOUS ALBUM ‘TIM’ RECEIVES SWEDISH GRAMMIS
February 11, 2020
Avicii’s posthumous album “Tim” received two Swedish Grammis for Song of the year for “SOS” feat. Aloe Blacc and Best Electro/Dance of the year for the album.
Co-producer Carl Falk released the album in June 2019, post Avicii’s tragic passing. On releasing the album, Falk said “When someone close to you passes, the emptiness becomes a mission. [Avicii] told me that this was the first time he’d enjoyed making music in years, so I had to make this as good as I could to honor him and our friendship.”
The duo first met in 2010 and had already completed single “Ain’t A Thing,” “Bad Reputation,” and “Fades Away.” Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir also co-wrote “Piece of Mind,” “Tough Love” and “Excuse Me Mir Sir,” with Avicii.
On winning, Falk shared the moment on his Instagram, captioning the post “Congrats everyone involved for receiving two Swedish Grammys for the album Tim. We worked hard all of us and the smile on Klas face says it all. Well done.”
In a second post, he said “I took the chance yesterday during my short speech to talk how important it is today to talk about mental illness and how stress, performance anxiety and burnout is something you deal with a lot as an artist, songwriter or producer. We all love to spend that extra hour in the studio to make a deadline or play that extra show when you really need a day off. And the bad thing about always being strong is that no one asks if you’re okay.”
Congratulations to all who brought us “Tim”.
