Following his untimely and tragic death in 2018, Avicii‘s posthumous album TIM was unveiled last year and for the work done on the Universal Music-released effort, it just won two Grammis (the Swedish equivalent to an American Grammy).
The individual awards were for Song Of The Year, “SOS” feat. Aloe Blacc, and Best Electro/Dance album of the year. Carl Falk shared the news on social media, stating, “Congrats everyone involved for receiving two Swedish Grammys for the album Tim. We worked hard all of us and the smile on Klas face says it all. Well done.”
Falk, who was responsible for work on “Ain’t A Thing,” “Bad Reputation,” and “Fades Away” on the award-winning project, continued in a second post: “I took the chance yesterday during my short speech to talk how important it is today to talk about mental illness and how stress, performance anxiety and burnout is something you deal with a lot as an artist, songwriter or producer. We all love to spend that extra hour in the studio to make a deadline or play that extra show when you really need a day off. And the bad thing about always being strong is that no one asks if you’re okay.”
