SOTD: ‘SOS’ is the first single from Avicii’s posthumous album
‘SOS’ featuring Aloe Blacc is the first single to be released from the upcoming Avicii 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’.
