For Avicii Collaborator, Finishing Posthumous Album 'Was Also A Grieving Process'

The music world mourned its sudden loss of the 28-year-old Swedish talent when Avicii died by suicide. For the electronic artist's friends tasked with seeing his posthumous album to the finish line, the creative process presented a particular challenge. Carl Falk, Avicii's close friend and collaborator says he was paralyzed with grief he associated with manipulating his friend's music. "It was almost impossible to go to the studio for the first couple of weeks," he says. "I would open a song and I would play the song and all of a sudden, you're like, 'Oh, this piano was recorded on this keyboard in Tim's house and his vocals, I remember there were so many memories that came up." Before his death, Avicii had been working on songs for a new album and left the tracks nearly complete. So his family turned to a group of Avicii's longtime creative partners to see it through. Avicii's posthumous third album, Tim, titled after his real name, Tim Bergling, was released last week.
