Posthumous Avicii Album Announced + First Single “SOS” feat. Aloe Blacc Released
The announcement comes nearly a year after his passing
Since his passing in April of last year, Avicii’s team have been sitting on a collection of nearly finished tracks that the Swedish DJ had been working on. Some of those tracks are now set to be released in a posthumous album titled “Tim”.
The lead single off the album sees Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) collaborating with Aloe Blacc, who’s vocals were used in his most popular track “Wake Me Up”. The track is called “SOS” and its lyrics speak to Avicii’s battles.
According to Blacc, the song is ahead of its time, stating “…he wrote these lyrics obviously about some of his battles, and I think it’s a really important topic to approach and to share, especially with his visibility and his access to ears and hearts. To give people the words to be able to say ’I need help.’”
Take a listen to “SOS” feat. Aloe Blacc below:
Tim will be released on June 6. Proceeds from the album will go to the nonprofit Tim Bergling Foundation.
EDC Las Vegas Reveals Major Improvements to Camp EDC
The campsite sits immediately next to the entrance to the festival
Last year, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas revealed its first-ever camping experience, dubbed Camp EDC. The camping options were a solution to increased attendance, traffic congestion, and to envelop guests in the sights and sounds of EDC 24/7.
One of the major complaints the inaugural camping experience received were the extremely long lines to get into the campsite, as vehicle inspections ran well into the night. Other issues included few dining options, limited showers and tent power problems.
In order to fix these issues for 2019, EDC Las Vegas has added major improvements to its campsite. In a post on social media, the festival stated they had addressed the pain-points, including “…separate RV & Car entrances, shorter wait times, artificial eco-grass covering entire campgrounds, enhanced power grid, improved restrooms and showers open 24 hours a day, more shade, more chill zones and seating areas, bigger pools, a bigger stage, a new Camp EDC supermarket with Headliner-friendly pricing, expanded healthy food options, and much more…”
Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas takes place May 17 – 19, 2019 from dusk till dawn at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Tickets and camping packages can be found HERE.
