The observe was written by Avicii (Tim Bergling) Carl Falk, Joakim Berg and Joe Janiak. Berg tells the story of the track coming collectively:
This was the primary track that got here out of the classes with Tim, Carl Falk, Joe Janiak and me within the spring of 2018. Tim and Joe met for the primary time today, and Tim simply cherished Joe’s voice and vibe from the beginning.
We talked briefly about 60s & 70s bands and artists being fairly snug working in pop however nonetheless having this otherworldly weirdness about their songs. How they made large leaps in temper and really feel inside only one track.
This dialog unintentionally seeped into Fades Away.
Carl began toying round with a climbing chord sequence on a synth with a piano sound and Joe sang together with Tim directing the rhythm. That turned the verse and the remaining was very quick. I had some chords and the start of the melody to the fades away half earlier than the drop and it has a really 60’s really feel chord/melody-wise and is sort of bizarre however fairly. Tim and Joe completed the melody and got here up with the phrases.
The drop half with the staccato strings was initially performed by Joe and Carl on two acoustic guitars, Tim had the stacc melody down on keys after which he was making Carl play a brilliant quick, very particular rhythm with arduous accents that was actually tough to play however sounded fairly superb and was hilarious to observe.
Tim simply cherished the “do not you like it, the way it all simply fades away” a part of the lyric.
It could now come throughout as a tragic track, however for us within the studio, writing it, we felt it was uplifting and light-weight hearted.
We wrote it in a vivid mode, kind of carefree, and there have been numerous laughing and joking, so for me Fades Away will all the time be a optimistic track, a easy message about accepting adjustments, the passing of time and making the most effective of what you will have.
