Avicii Radio Channel Launches on SiriusXM

Six years after the death of Avicii, the producer is getting a SiriusXM channel centered around his catalog.

On Thursday (May 23), SiriusXM announced Avicii Radio, now available exclusively via the SiriusXM app. The channel features Avicii classics, remixes and never-before-heard music from past live performances.

The channel will also play music by the producer's friends, influences and collaborators including Nicky Romero, Armin van Buuren, Laidback Luke and Aloe Blacc, who famously delivered the vocals on Avicii's biggest hit, "Wake Me Up" - which was also the first song played on the channel.

The channel launches in conjunction with Mental Health Month and aims to uplift listeners with music. Avicii Radio is being produced in collaboration with the Tim Bergling Foundation, which was created by his family in the wake of the artist's 2018 suicide. The channel will also include programming that highlights events and concerts in Stockholm benefitting the Tim Bergling Foundation, which focuses on mental health initiatives for young people.

"This is a great continuation of Tim's relationship with SiriusXM and Geronimo, SiriusXM's Vice President of Dance Music, who were supporters of his music very early on in his career," Avicii's father Klas Bergling, who is also the director of the Tim Bergling Foundation, says in a statement. "We appreciate their interest in promoting the emotional well-being of young people and of the Tim Bergling Foundation and its goals."

"Tim and I had a special friendship dating back to his early career," adds SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer Scott Greenstein, "so to work with his family to observe and celebrate his legacy through music with Avicii Radio is something I am personally excited about and honored to bring to our listeners."
