Avicii – TIM
The Swedish DJ Avicii was almost done composing this new album when he passed away April last year.

The album called TIM will be released on 6 June 2019 and contains 12 singles, including SOS, the single that was released this April.

Her new album is inspired by artists and musicians Madonna got to know since moving to Portugal. She calls it a “melting pot of culture musically, from Angola to Guinea-Bissau to Spain to Brazil to France to Cape Verde".
