Tim is slated to drop in June, and all proceeds from the posthumous album will benefit the Tim Bergling Foundation, created to support mental illness and suicide prevention. With the pain of his death being felt around the world, and though we still might not be ready to hear it, his team has announced a new posthumous album entitled Tim, with the lead single SOS dropping April 10.
