Avicii’s family confirms that he died by suicide in a new public statement.

The statement translated from Swedish:

“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An overachieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress. When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about meaning, life, happiness. He could not go on any longer.

He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in, he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.

Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.

We love you, Your family.”

His former manager, Arash Pournouri, also wrote in an early statement on Instagram that we wished he could have been there with Tim in Oman to prevent all this to happen.

Avicii died at age 28.
