The home stretch is finally in sight. We are just roughly 12 hours away from the release of Avicii‘s posthumous album TIM. To hold us over, Tuesday night Aloe Blacc kept building the anticipation for TIM as he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform ‘SOS‘ for the very first time.
For some lucky fans throughout the world, they were able to pre-listen and experience the masterpiece of TIM via the cube this past weekend. Most fans, myself included, will have to endure the next 12 hours as we patiently wait for what will become one of the most memorable albums in electronic music history.
However, Aloe Blacc gave us an incredibly heartfelt live rendition as we’ve never heard before including a full band, brass section and all. Boy did it leave goosebumps!
So far we’ve had the pleasure of hearing two songs off the album TIM, ‘SOS‘, and ‘Tough Love‘. Both are very different from each other, yet still, embody Avicii music even though he was unable to finish these masterpieces himself.
Check out Aloe Blacc’s touching tribute performance of ‘SOS’ below. Furthermore, we can’t believe TIM is almost here for all of us to enjoy. However, it does leave us with the burning question, is this the final time we will ever hear new music from Avicii?
