The second single to be released from Avicii’s posthumous album ‘TIM’ will be released tomorrow, 9th May.
‘Tough Love’ was made in collaboration with Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir (AKA Vargas & Lagola), both of whom had worked with the late producer – real name Tim Bergling – before on tracks like ‘Silhouettes’, ‘Hey Brother’, ‘Without You’.

This year's International Music Summit, co-curated by shesaid.so, will also host Pete Tong interviewing Zane Lowe , and an interview with Charlotte de Witte.

The first track to be shared from Avicii’s posthumous album, ‘Tim’, has been released.
A posthumous Avicii album will be released in June, according to an official statement released by his team.
At the time of the EDM star’s tragic death on 20th April 2018 he was close to finishing a new album and, according to a statement released today, the beloved DJ/producer’s “family decided not to keep the music locked away – instead they wanted to share it with his fans all around the world”.
Avicii’s family have started the Tim Bergling Foundation in support of mental health.
The project will initially concentrate on offering support to individuals and organisations in the field of mental health and suicide prevention, before expanding to cover other issues such as climate change, development assistance, nature conservation and the protection of endangered species.
"Tim wanted to make a difference – starting a foundation in his name is our way to honour his memory and continue to act in his spirit," an official statement from the family said.
Avicii was awarded a posthumous award at Sweden’s annual Grammy Gala (Grammisgalan).
The honorary Grammy was presented to the late EDM superstar’s father, Klaus Bergling, at the ceremony on 7th February. The beloved producer – real name Tim Bergling – had received a Grammy award before in 2012 for his breakthrough single ‘Levels’.
Rocketing into the Top 100 in 2017 at No.26, Belgium’s Felix De Laet has enjoyed an equally rocketing career trajectory since he broke into the big-time with his breakthrough 2014 smash, ‘Are You With Me’. Establishing a partnership with Armin van Buuren’s iconic Armada camp, where he dropped his ‘Less Is More’ album a few years later, including breakthrough hits ‘Reality’ and ‘Are You With Me’. Felix says the biggest development this year was his live debut at his country’s Tomorrowland festival.
Wankelmut 'One Day'
“This is the track that got me into the deep house kind of vibe that I love so much, guitar sounds and good vocals — love it.”
“This influenced me because of the use of the synths and the cool delay sounds — and again a cool mix of energy and emotion.”
Avicii & Philgood 'A New Hope'
“An unreleased track unfortunately but so good. I’m a big electro house fan and this is definitely one of my favourites.”
Marshall Jefferson 'Move Your Body (Tchami Tribute)'
“Amazing track by Tchami! Tchami was really one of my favourite producers around a few years ago, his sound design AND creativity were insane — and still is!”
Fisher 'Losing It'
“Any track by Fisher is amazing. Fisher is an amazing mix of accessible good vibes tech-house and aggressive sounds at the same time. It was a perfect insight for me on how I could grow as a producer if I wanted to go deeper.”
Netsky 'Iron Heart'
“The production behind this track made me fall in love with Netsky. Everything he released is pure magic, and I’m so happy I got to make a track with him.”
Zonderling 'Tunnel Vision'
“Zonderling inspired me with their take of 'Domino' by Oxia, but once they put out 'Tunnel Vision', they really created something unique and amazingly powerful.”
“I had to pick a track from Flume. Flume inspired me and keeps on inspiring me on sound design and production, mixed with feelings and electronic sounds. By far my favourite producer of the last five years.”
Eric Prydz 'Opus'
“I was always really afraid of changing bpms in tracks, also because it would be harder to mix in a set, but 'Opus' taught me different. Now I love messing around with the BPM and build-ups that make my tracks evolve into something unpredictable.”
