The Grammy-nominated Swedish musician, DJ, Avicii’s sudden death shocked the entire nation. Last week, musicians and fans on social media mourned the loss of 28-year-old Tim Bergling(Avicii’s real name). Thousands of devastated fans gathered in central Stockholm to mourn Wake Me Up! Singer Avicii, who was found dead in Muscat, Oman, on Friday, 20 April.
After a week of suspenseful death of 28-year-old Swedish singer Avicii in Muscat, his family has shared more details on singer’s life. His family implied that Avicii “could not go on any longer” and that “he wanted to find peace”.
Avicii’s family has released a second statement that seemingly offers more insight into the DJ’s cause of death.
“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,” the statement issued by his family began. “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,” the statement continued. “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.”
The statement concluded, “Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive. We love you, Your family.”
However, Avicii’s official cause of death is yet to be confirmed by Oman authorities. It is also said that there is no criminal suspicion in his death and the body of Avicii will be flown home to Sweden this week.
