Early Life

Tim Bergling was born on September 8, 1989, in Stockholm, Sweden, to Klas Bergling and Anki Lidén. His mother was a minor actor who appeared in over 50 Swedish films and TV series. He was one of his parents’ four children and was heavily influenced by his older brother, who was also a musician and DJ.

Avicii began making music when he was 16 years old. He began posting his music on various online electronic music forums within a few months. In his early years, he remixed a number of classic songs.

His work got to the right people, and he was soon approached by well-known music labels. His music was similar to that of the popular group ‘Swedish House Mafia,’ which helped him gain a large fan base.

Daft Punk and Steve Angello’s music also influenced Avicii. He combined melodic sounds with deep bass house sounds. DJ Tisto and Pete Tong both praised his music. Tisto introduced Avicii to a number of professional DJs and also arranged for him to perform live in small venues.

Avicii had begun working as a part-time DJ by 2010, remixing for artists such as Little Boots and Robyn. Meanwhile, he kept releasing his own singles, including ‘Bromance’ and ‘My Feelings for You.’ ‘Seek Bromance,’ a remixed version of his single ‘Bromance,’ featuring Amanda Wilson’s vocals, was a huge success.

Career

Avicii’s early successes introduced him to the right people in the music industry. By 2011, he had completed work on his breakthrough single, ‘Levels.’ The song featured vocals from Etta James’s famous gospel-inspired 60s song “Something’s Got a Hold on Me.”

‘Levels’ made national and international waves, establishing Avicii in the mainstream music scene. The song was a top ten hit in many European countries and also made waves in the United States.

Avicii was riding high on the success of ‘Levels,’ when he was approached by superstar DJ David Guetta, who suggested a collaborative track.

The result of their collaboration was the single ‘Sunshine,’ which became an instant international success. Later, it was nominated for a ‘Grammy’ award for ‘Best Dance Recording.’

He was also involved in a minor controversy the same year. Leona Lewis allegedly used a portion of his single ‘Fade into Darkness’ without his permission on her single ‘Collide.’ Leona did not give Avicii credit, and the case was taken to court. Leona’s lawyer then offered Avicii a collaborative album with his client. The situation was resolved when Avicii accepted the offer.

Avicii debuted his new song, ‘Girl Gone Wild,’ with Madonna at the 2012 Ultra Music Festival in Miami. He also released another single, ‘Superlove,’ with Lenny Kravitz, at the same event. He received two million likes on his ‘Facebook’ page the same year. Following that, he released a song called ‘Two Million,’ which he made available for free download on the music-streaming platform ‘SoundCloud.’

Over the next few months, he released a string of hit singles, including ‘Silhouettes,’ ‘Dancing in my Head,’ ‘Stay with You,’ and ‘Let it Go.’ The final two songs were from his debut studio album, which he said would be released in 2013.

Meanwhile, his run of success continued in 2012, with a number of new collaborations. He worked with Nicky Romero on the single ‘I Could Be the One,’ which became a big hit with American audiences. The song has been played on a number of American reality shows as well as European radio shows.

Avicii released ‘Wake Me Up,’ one of his most meaningful and successful singles to date, in early 2013. The song was his most successful single, topping the charts in over 20 countries around the world. In a mid-2013 interview, he stated that his debut studio album, ‘True,’ would be available for purchase by the end of the year. He also revealed details about the album, stating that he heavily used the new genre “folktronica,” which is a fusion of folk music and electronic music.

By the end of July, ‘Wake Me Up’ had become the fastest-selling single in the UK. The single also set a record by spending 14 weeks at the top of Billboard’s ‘Dance/Electronic’ music chart. In the months that followed, Avicii released more singles from the album, piqued people’s interest even more.

The album ‘True’ was released in late 2013 and featured a number of well-known artists, including Nile Rodgers and Adam Lambert.

A few more songs from the album became successful, including ‘Hey Brother’ and ‘Addicted to You,’ and the album was certified “platinum” by the ‘Recording Industry Association of America’ (RIAA). The album’s club remix version, ‘True: Avicii by Avicii,’ was released the following year. The same year, he collaborated on the single ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ with Chris Martin of the legendary rock band ‘Coldplay.’

Avicii released his second album, ‘Stories,’ in late 2015, and fused pop music with electronic sounds. The album peaked at number one on the ‘Billboard’ dance chart. Other successful singles from this period included a remix of Nina Simone’s classic jazz song “Feeling Good,” “Tracks of My Tears,” “Divine Sorrow,” and “Heaven.”

He became exhausted as a result of his frequent live tours. He announced his retirement from live shows in 2016. His most recent live performance took place in Ibiza.

Personal Life & Death

Avicii was a heavy alcoholic, and his health had suffered as a result. He was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis in 2012 and underwent gallbladder and appendix removal. Despite his health concerns, he continued to tour, putting his mental and physical well-being at risk.

By 2017, he was open about his depression and suicidal thoughts. Depression is common among artists, and Avicii is the most recent victim. Perhaps the pressure and lack of privacy that fame brought contributed to his deteriorating mental health.

His lifeless body was discovered in his hotel room near Muscat, Oman, on April 20, 2018. His family revealed a few days later that he had cut himself and bled to death.

With Avicii’s suicide, another bright star in the music industry faded into obscurity. The concept of the “tortured artist” had manifested itself once more. He was 28 years old when he died, but his music will always be timeless and immortal.
