Avicii's Dad Does Not Believe He Planned to Kill Himself

Avicii‘s father, Klas Bergling, does not believe the late musician intended to kill himself.

The late DJ’s dad opened up in an interview with CNN on Wednesday (July 3).

In the interview, he says he believes there were many factors leading up to Avicii‘s death, including a demanding schedule that “brought him out of his control.”

“Our theory is not that he planned this suicide — more that it was like a traffic accident. Many things happened and came into the same station, so to say, and brought him out of his control.”

“When he was in a bad situation he always used to call me. We talked a lot (about) his thoughts about life, his thoughts about meditation, love…we had long talks, often one hour or so, over the ocean,” he added.

“If you are very happy or extremely happy, it’s not so far to be unhappy…small things can make you sad or move your balance and I think this is what happened,” he went on to say.

“As a DJ or an artist you have to do a lot of things you don’t want to do, in the end that takes a part of you. [It] takes a lot out of these people — the traveling, waiting at airports, late nights.”

Avicii died in April of 2018.

Dan Reynolds, Aloe Blacc & More Open Up About Working With the Late Avicii

Avicii is on the cover of Spin‘s June 2019 issue, out now.

Aloe Blacc, Imagine Dragons singer Dan Reynolds, and collaborator Carl Falk are among the stars paying tribute to the late EDM superstar.

Here’s what they had to say…

Aloe, on learning the lyrics to “SOS”: “Had he released it, it potentially could have been the lynchpin to holding together whatever moment might’ve triggered him and having support from millions and millions of fans, you know?”

Dan, on Avicii’s creative vision: “He knew what he wanted to hear. I remember singing melody after melody like, ‘na na na na!’ and he would be like, ‘Hmm.’ Then I sang the melody that became ‘Heart Upon My Sleeve’ and his eyes lit up. He was like, ‘Yes!’”

Carl, on the dark side of Avicii’s work ethic: “He’d call eight hours after I left the studio, and he’d still be there with his half eaten cheeseburger laying on the laptop. It was terrible to see. We had to make sure that he slept, that he ate.”

Avicii feat. Aloe Blacc: 'SOS' Stream, Lyrics & Download - Listen Now!

Avicii‘s first posthumous production, “SOS” with Aloe Blacc, is here.

The track was released on Wednesday (April 10), ten days before the one year anniversary of his tragic death.

The song is the lead single from his forthcoming posthumous record Tim out on June 6, which was about 90% completed before his untimely passing.

“I feel like ‘SOS’ was a song that was probably ahead of its time for when he wrote it. 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,’” said Aloe in a statement.
