It took around a year from his demise to complete the 12-track LP. The album also includes the single 'SOS', which released in April 2019.

Universal Music UK announced the release of the album on Twitter:

The producers of Tim are Avicii, Karl Falk, Vargas and Lagola, Albin Nedler, Bonn, Lucas von Bahder, Arash Pournouri.

One of the most popular and successful electronic dance-music artists of all time — he scored a No 4 hit on the Billboard 200 in 2013 with 'Wake Me Up' and regularly appeared in the Top 5 of Forbes’ Highest-Paid DJs lists. Avicii retired from live performing in 2016 at the peak of his success, citing health reasons. He had suffered from health problems for several years, including acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking; he had his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014.
