While Avicii‘s posthumous album TIM is slated for release on June 6th, some fans will have the opportunity to hear the project a bit earlier.
It was recently revealed that multiple cubes would be placed around the world on June 1st and 2nd, and connected to the Swedish artist in some way. Now, there is further explanation of what these structures mean via an informational video. “Avicii’s music was the soundtrack when we fell in love, when we made new friends and that time we danced all night. Avicii connected us. Around the world there are cubes just like this one. Walk inside and place your hand on the glowing Avicii symbol. When the symbols in two cubes are touched at the same time both cubes will activate. Together you will experience the new Avicii album” the visual states.
This concept poses an interesting challenge when two people in specified international locations like Stockholm, London, São Paulo, New York City, Sydney, and Tokyo will have to activate the structures at the exact same moment. The coordinates of the cubes are still unknown and also unspecified are certain logistics such as whether there will be an RSVP list, time limits on listening, and more. These questions may be answered in the coming days, but in the meantime, watch the official teaser video below.
