Avicii will release an album in June, a year after his unexpected death.

Tim will be comprised of songs the DJ, real name Tim Bergling, worked on in the months leading up to his death.

Producers on the album say the songs were 75 to 80 percent done before his death. Many of them will feature frequent Avicii collaborators.

Aloe Blacc, who sang on Avicii's hit 'Wake Me Up', will sing on the album's first single 'SOS'.

'SOS' will be released on April 10.

Avicii died suddenly in April 2018 while on a trip to Muscat, Oman. His death was widely reported to have been a suicide.

His family told the New York Times they're still coming to terms with the loss and the circumstances of his death.

"I use the word as often as I remember to use it. I have to get used to the word," his father Klas Bergling said.

"There is no letter… Nothing points in the direction that he was planning it."
