The first posthumous single by Avicii has been released, nearly one year after his death. The song is called "SOS" and features vocals by Aloe Blacc, whom the Swedish DJ teamed up with for 2013's mega-hit "Wake Me Up." The lyrics deal with depression and glimmers of hope: "I can feel your love pulling me up from the underground/ I don't need my drugs." Pitchfork reports that the single is accompanied by a video featuring messages from Avicii fans from around the world. Avicii took his own life last April at age 28. All proceeds from his forthcoming album TIM will benefit the Tim Bergling Foundation, which supports mental health causes.
