Swedish EDM artist Avicii dies at 28

BREAKING Avicii Just Died At 28 Lucas

The album featured the global hit "Wake Me Up" ft Aloe Blacc, Adam Lambert and Audra Mae. The cause of his death has not yet been released. His debut album "True" was released in September, although numerous songs had already been previewed at the Ultra Music Festival earlier that year. While dealing with the recovery, the DJ had canceled many shows and stopped going on tours for his music.

The DJs broke out on the scene as lead performers in their own right, earning global hits, fame, awards and treated like pop stars.

His publicist Diana Baron released a statement on Friday confirming his death. In 2014 he had his gallbladder and appendix removed, and also suffered from acute pancreatitis, in part due to alcohol problems.

Rodgers says his last performance with Avicii was three years ago and was a painful experience because the DJ was drunk.

Avicii's publicist shared that his family is devastated, and the DJ's ex-girlfriend Emily Goldberg took to Instagram to pen down an emotional post.

Her co-defendant, Isabelle Lagace , 30, a former porn star, was given a discounted sentence for an early guilty plea. The confiscation of the shipment was the largest amount ever pulled in from a cruise ship docking in Australia .

Victor of multiple music awards and recipient of two Grammy nominees over the course of a 12-year career, Avicii gained fame with his energetic performances and top charts like "Wake Me Up", "Hey Brother" and "Levels".

Despite his explanation, fans speculated if Avicii's health problems - about which he had spoken out publicly including acute pancreatitis, triggered in part by excessive drinking - was the reason he had chose to end his tours. For an 18-year-old who started impressing electronic music producers such as Laidback Luke, Avicii quickly became one among the trusted Swedish house scene to be a reliable party-starter.

He released two albums, 2013's True and 2015's Stories, before announcing in 2016 that he would retire from touring. "From that point on, I just jumped into 100 percent", Avicii told The Hollywood Reporter in 2016. "But I'm sort of afraid of anything that makes you feel out of control". It was always the other stuff surrounding it that never came naturally to me. Such a huge musical inspiration to me and many others. will miss you so much. "That is all." I will say that I always stop the video before the very end, when our heroine meets her end too soon. "I took on board too much negative energy, I think". Some said that, even after Avicii announced his retirement, they'd held hope they would see him on stage again.

Avicii later returned to the more quiet life of a studio artist.
