Avicii’s death may have been a suicide, according to late producer’s family
The global dance music community is still in shock over from Avicii’s untimely passing. The Swedish producer was found dead in Muscat, Oman, on April 20. Now Avicii‘s family has issued a second public announcement that may begin to give fans closure. But the statement also raised questions with the late producer’s inference that Bergling “wanted to find peace.”
The statement reads,
Stockholm, 26 April 2018
Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.
He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.
Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight. Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
We love you,
Information seeker. Dog lover. Ph.D. drop out. Avid collector of pashminas, plants, and experiences. College professor by day, EDM photographer by night.
