The album Avicii had been working on prior to his death is reportedly now ready for release, according to website TMZ.

The late Swedish DJ's team announced on Friday that it will be releasing the album Avicii made, but with collaborators working on the near-completed tracks using notes, emails and text messages left by Avicii in which he discussed the music he was working on, reports news.com.au.

The family did not want to keep the last music made by Avicii, who died on April 20, 2018 at the age of 28 locked away from fans.

Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling — and who was also a remixer and record producer — was apparently close to completing the new album before his untimely and tragic death.

The album, which is touchingly titled Tim, is scheduled for a June 6 release, with the first track, "S.O.S.", landing on April 10 and offering fans a preview of this moving musical tribute.

Proceeds from the posthumous album will go to the Tim Bergling Foundation, which works towards providing mental health services and suicide prevention. The foundation also is active in climate change, nature conservation and protecting endangered species.
