When you’re one of the most recognizable DJs and producers in the world; when you’ve sold millions of records, had billions of downloads and 11 billion streams, bested the globe’s biggest stages, and worked your way from upstart to celebrated icon, your life looks like a blockbuster movie – from the outside.
On the inside, Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, who is naturally shy, struggled with life on the road. Even as international chart-toppers ‘Levels’ and ‘Wake Me Up’ catapulted him to brighter stardom, he became an ever more elusive character of dance music myth. His announcement that he was retiring from touring in mid-2016 sent shock waves through the community. Unfortunately, on April 20th, 2018, the electronic dance music world had to say goodbye to Tim Bergling as he had passed away.
With his massive legacy left behind, a stand-out single of his, ‘Waiting For Love’, still holds up as one of the greatest releases of the 2010s. Featuring uncredited vocals by Simon Aldred and uncredited co-production from Martin Garrix, this track was first unveiled during Martin Garrix‘s set at Ultra Music Festival 2015. This track served as the lead single from Avicii‘s second album ‘Stories’, which was released later in that year.
