A few days before his death, Avicii was nominated for a music award Billboard Music Award
The family of the Swedish DJ and producer Tim Bergling, who acted under the name Avicii and died last week, issued a statement from which it can be concluded that they consider suicide the cause of the death of a musician.
Their statement says that the 28-year-old DJ had a subtle artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. "Being a perfectionist, he traveled too much and worked hard at a pace that caused extreme stress", – the text says.
"When he stopped touring tours, he wanted to find a balance in life, – said in a statement published by the publication Variety. – He was very hard, he thought about Sense, Life, Happiness. He could not stand it any longer. He wanted to find peace".
No other details are given in the application. Earlier, the cause of death of the musician was not called. Two years ago, he announced that he was stopping touring because of health problems.
This is the second statement of Avicii’s relatives since his death: on Monday they thanked the fans who responded to the untimely demise of the DJ.
