Avicii’s death hit us all hard, and while most of us wished the magic wasn’t over, Starkillers released a bunch of Avicii produced tracks to ease the pain. The album has a lot of beautiful tracks and while it may be a great memorial to the legend, it also came with some controversy.
In a Twitter conversation with DJ and producer, Tegi we learned that Starkillers only released the album because it was an unreleased collection that was shut down by Avicii’s management.
As much as we would have loved to believe it was all about the music, Starkillers admits that Avicii’s death opened up loopholes in the contract. Without Avicii’s death we may have never heard this music, but unfortunately Starkillers’ intentions were not as honorable as they seemed.
Check out the tweets below!
Fuck @Starkillers for using Avicii’s death for clout and releasing a joint album together. You just ended your career dude @TheFPIA @YourEDM pic.twitter.com/Z6jygR3y2h

Idk man you should be careful with your wording and most definitely give some background details and some truth behind the album and the release and why you have Avicii name on it. The way you explained it in DMs sounds very wrong.
