The Avicii Estate has announced a documentary about the Swedish dance producer. They haven’t released many details about it, but we can expect a release sometime in 2023.
A statement from the Avicii Estate says that the documentary “is an up-close, intimate, and epic story about his unparalleled successes and his struggle to cope with the pressure.” Viewers can expect behind the scenes and never-before-seen footage of the “Levels” and “Hey Brother” producer.
Bergling’s family, colleagues, friends, and Bergling himself will also make appearances throughout the documentary. Björn Tjärnberg and filmmaker Henrik Burman will be the producers and filmmakers behind the documentary. Burman directed the 2020 documentary Yung Lean: In My Head.
“My goal is to provide an honest and new perspective on both the artist Avicii and Tim’s life,” Burman said in a statement. “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.”
Avicii passed away from suicide back in April of 2018. In 2017, we saw the release of the documentary True Stories, which showcased his exhaustion towards the end of his career as well as his decision to retire from touring. The year after his death his third album TIM was released.
