Cath Burke, Deputy Managing Director of Little, Brown Book Group and Executive Publisher of Sphere has acquired Tim: The Official Biography of Avicii for WEL publication with Sphere in the UK and with Mobius in North America, on November 16th 2021.
Tim Bergling was a musical visionary who, through his sense for melodies, came to define the era when Swedish and European house music took over the world. But Tim Bergling was also an introverted and fragile young man who was forced to grow up at an inhumanly fast pace. After a series of emergencies resulting in hospital stays, he stopped touring in the summer of 2016. Barely two years later, he took his own life at the age of twenty-eight.
Tim – The Official Biography of Avicii is written by the award-winning journalist Måns Mosesson, who, through interviews with Tim’s family, friends and colleagues in the music business, has intimately gotten to know the star producer. The book paints an honest picture of Tim and his search in life, not shying from the difficulties that he struggled with.
It’s almost impossible to grasp how big an impact Tim Bergling had, both on the music industry at large and on his fans all over the world. The author, Måns Mosesson, has travelled in Tim’s footsteps across the globe, from the streets of his childhood in Stockholm, to Miami, Ibiza and Los Angeles, in order to provide an in-depth and multifaceted picture of Tim’s life and works.
Måns Mosesson is an award-winning investigative journalist with a background as a documentary producer and in-depth reporter.
Avicii AB’s net proceeds from Tim – The Authorised Biography of Avicii will be donated in full to the Tim Bergling Foundation, in order to support the foundation’s cause: the prevention of mental health issues and suicide.
