Avicii set to return to the Official Singles Chart Top 40 following DJ's untimely death

Three of the Swedish producer's hits are on course to return to the Official Chart.

Avicii's music is set to return to the Official Singles Chart Top 40 following his untimely death last week. 

The Swedish DJ/producer passed away on Friday, April 20 aged 28. A statement from his representatives said he was found dead in Muscat, Oman, adding: "We ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given."

Three of Avicii's hit singles are set to return to the Top 40 this week as fans pay tribute to the DJ. 2013's Wake Me Up - a three-week chart-topper at the time - is currently at Number 13. The track, which features uncredited vocals from Aloe Blacc and was the fastest-selling single that year, is one of the UK's best-selling singles of all time with sales of 1.5 million. 

Meanwhile, Avicii's global breakthrough hit Levels, originally a Number 4 hit in 2011 - is at 24, and 2013 single Hey Brother re-enters at 32. Check out the rest of this week's Official Chart Update here.

Over on the Official Albums Chart Update, Avicii’s two studio albums True and Stories are also set to return to the Top 40 at 15 and 21, while his remix album True – Avicii by Avicii is at 23.

Avicii first released music under the name Tim Berg, scoring a Top 20 hit with Seek Bromance in 2010. Following the collaboration Collide with Leona Lewis, his career skyrocketed, landing nine Top 10 singles.

He claimed his first Official Singles Chart Number 1 I Could Be The One (with Nicky Romero) in February 2013, before releasing his debut album True, which reached Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart in November 2013.

After announcing he would retire from touring in 2016, Avicii returned to music in late 2017 with his Avicii EP. His final single, Lonely Together ft. Rita Ora, reached Number 4. View Avicii’s full Official UK Chart history here.
