Abba singer’s company buys parts of Avicii song catalogue
The song catalog of the Swedish musician Avicii, who died in 2018, has been largely bought up. The new owner is the company of Abba singer Björn.
The company of Abba singer Björn Ulvaeus has three quarters of the rights to the song catalog of the Swedish musician, who died in 2018 Avicii acquired. This was announced by Pophouse Entertainment, which includes Ulvaeus, on Wednesday in Stockholm.
The family of the DJ, whose real name was Tim Bergling, remain minority owners. She had previously worked with the company on an interactive museum honoring the artist called the Avicii Experience. The sale will allow the family to focus more on their work at the Tim Bergling Foundation, which deals with the mental health of young people, the statement said.
Bergling was found dead in Muscat, the capital of Oman, in April 2018. The global star, who suffers from mental health problems and created international electropop hits such as “Levels”, “Hey Brother” and “Addicted To You”, was only 28 years old.
