Starkillers is clapping back at internet trolls and anyone else who thinks he shared an unreleased album from 2011 — co-produced by Tim Bergling aka Avicii — for his own personal gain.


Let’s not get it twisted — this is a Starkillers album titled Killers & Rockers, not a joint release with Avicii. According to Starkillers, he gave a young Tim Bergling an opportunity to work on this project because he believed in the aspiring producer.

“Tim was absolutely nobody and I gave him a shot in my camp,” he explains in the video below. “Brought him from Sweden over to f*cking America and mentored him.”

He claims Avicii’s former manager blocked his Killers & Rockers album right before “Levels” came out, which explains why the album has been in limbo. Now, he thinks fans deserve to hear it.

It should be noted, the videos below are in response to viral DMs that recently sparked up some controversy, and painted him in a shady light. Get caught up here.

If we’re letting the music speak for itself — the album is simply amazing. Listen here.
