Avicii, born Tim Bergling, started his career in music at just 16 years old. He began creating music and remixes to popular electronic songs, and posted the finished products online. That led to signing his

first record deal posting his remixes in online forums of electronic music, which led him to sign his first record label deal with EMI Music Publishing. But this talented artist was just getting started!

Avicii’s progressive house track, “Levels,” skyrocketed his career into another dimension. The song did major numbers on the music charts across the world, and opened the door for new

opportunities for global performances and collaborations with other artists and DJs. This newfound fame and money surely seemed great on the outside, but, on the inside, Avicii wasn’t okay…

Early Retirement From The Road

Avicii soon found that he was losing pieces of who he really was behind the fame. He began drinking and partying too hard, which led to serious health problems. In 2016, the artist announced he would be retiring from touring. “I have too little left for the

life of a real person behind the artist,” Avicii wrote in a heartfelt letter to the public. However he also made a promise: “I will however never let go of music — I will continue to speak to my fans through it.” And he did just that!

Working Behind The Scenes

even released his own documentary, Avicii: True Stories, in 2017. He was seemingly doing so well. So when this heartbreaking news about him dropped, no one could believe it…

without knowing I’ll never see his face again,” she said. “Wake me up when it’s all over, because I don’t want it to be real.” Sadly, the news was very real, and more details would soon be revealed about Avicii’s inner demons…

any longer. He wanted to find peace,” part of the statement read. “Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in.” Those words led people to believe that Avicii’s death might have been intentional…

The Tragic Implication
