Well, what started off as a fun day of posts is ending on a sad note.
It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this post, and news to you, that Swedish EDM and pop music has just lost a legend.
Swedish superstar DJ Avicii has reportedly died.
In a statement from his publicist Diana Baron, it has been confirmed that Avicii was found dead in Muscat, Oman this afternoon. The cause of his death is still unknown, and the story is developing.
Here is the official statement from the Avicii camp:
“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii. He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”
This is very sad news in the music world. My thoughts and condolences are out to his family, friends, and of course his fans.
Avicii (Tim Bergling) was only 28-years-old, was a two-time Grammy nominated producer and song-writer, and saw a ton of global mainstream success in the last few years of his career.
I will continue to update this as more details come out, but for now, we should all take a moment and listen to one of his biggest hits.
R.I.P. Avicii, you will be missed.
