‘SOS’ featuring Aloe Blacc is the first single to be released from the upcoming album titled TIM.

Albin Nedler and Kristoffer Fogelmark co-produced the track with the late hitmaker, which was 90% complete at the time of his passing.

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

“He [Avicii] 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.”

‘SOS’ is already impacting radio with early across-the-board adds to the national Hit Network.

Multi-Platinum singles ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey Brother’ amassed 10 combined weeks atop the TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.

‘Wake Me Up’ is one of the longest-serving singles in the chart’s history behind ‘Shut Up & Dance’, ‘Use Somebody’ and ‘Uptown Funk’.
