Nearly three and a half years after Avicii’s untimely passing, the producer’s estate has announced that a new documentary on the life and music of the Swedish artist born Tim Bergling is in the works.
Set for release in 2023, the film is set to feature newly produced material and as well as interviews with Bergling's family, friends and colleagues, along with never-before-seen archive footage with Bergling himself.
Produced by Swedish director and cinematographer Björn Tjärnberg and Candamo Film in cooperation with Swedish National Television, the documentary shot by Swedish director Henrik Burman is described as an inside look at the "music and the artist who defined an era and changed the world of music forever,” as well as “an up-close, intimate, and epic story about his unparalleled successes and his struggles to cope with the pressure.”
“My goal is to provide an honest and new perspective on both the artist Avicii and Tim’s life," Burman says. "I want this to be a film that surprises the audience and challenges the public's image of Sweden’s biggest international artist of today and, in doing so, also shine a light on what his music has meant to so many people.”
Burman’s yet to be titled doc isn’t the first of its kind. Previously released documentary, Avicii: True Stories, captivated audiences in 2017 with its raw depiction of the highs and lows of the producer’s music career. Not afraid to delve into the personal struggles Avicii faced, the doc helped spark the much needed conversation about mental health in the music industry.
