Following Avicii‘s death in Oman earlier this year, one of the most tragic realisations of the incident was that the world would not hear any fresh music from Tim Bergling ever again. The production mastermind, responsible for a flurry of the biggest hits ever made, was truly a genius in the studio, but now, his Mike Posner collaboration ‘Change A Thang‘ has been leaked – albeit, just 17 seconds of the track.
Though it is no secret that Tim had already worked on an entire new LP worth of music following the 2017 release of his EP which included ‘Without You‘ and ‘Lonely Together’, it is believed that he was planning on releasing the next half of the tracks in summer 2018, prior to his death. However, the people of the internet have now got their hands on a snippet of ‘Change A Thang’, which features Mike Posner – who Avicii previously worked with on ‘Stay With You.’
Though it is currently unclear as to whether or not this track will ever be given the official green light from management, the label, and Tim’s grieving family, we can only hope that the world finds a way to hear his unreleased tracks in future as judging by this one – Tim’s production quality was as stunningly high as ever.

A 17 second snippet of a new @Avicii track with @MikePosner surfaced on the web a couple of weeks ago, but seems like no one noticed it. It's called "Change A Thang" and features the melody from Forever Yours (Avicii by Avicii). Will probably not be released in the near future. pic.twitter.com/vMjY58b8G3
