On April 20 last year, Tim Bergling left, 28 years, during a trip in Oman.
The news spread rapidly around the world, and family, friends, fans and stars celebrated and lamented the Swedish music scene.
It is now a year since Avicii's death, and in June his latest album, "Tim," was released by his friends. All profits from the album will go to the foundation that the artist's family started in his honor and that promotes work against mental illness and suicide.
On the anniversary, the family chose to publish a photo of a happy Tim Bergling, who is playing the piano, to pay homage to him.
"Spread positivity through my music and messages, and enjoy success, but not material success – Tim, 2018. Forever in our hearts, thoughts and ears," says the photo.
In just two hours, the image had already passed 700,000 times, and world-famous profiles such as Kygo, Sebastian Ingrosso and Nicky Romero commented on the hearts in the comments.
Dhani Lennevald, known for A-Teens and for writing music with Avicii, published a photo on his Instagram with the artist and several other composers.
Even Tim Bergling's former businessman, Ash Pournouri, put a photo on the day of death to honor his friend and express his absence.
"I have seen how sadness can have different expressions, but I have not yet identified mine, probably because it will always gnaw a little from my broken heart," Ash Pournouri writes on Instagram.
