The tallest church tower in the Netherlands has paid tribute to late musician Avicii in the most touching way.

The Swedish EDM star’s songs rang out from Dom Tower, Utrecht, on Saturday – a day after his sudden death was announced.

The church bells played the tracks ‘Wake Me Up’, ‘Without You’ and ‘Hey Brother’ to honour the musician.

Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, died on April 20, aged 28.

Malgosia Fiebig, the city’s carillonneur, revealed on Twitter that they would play his songs as a tribute.

Bergling’s publicist Diana Baron announced his death in a statement.

It reads: ‘It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

‘He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.’

The official cause of death has not been revealed yet.

Two autopsies have been carried out with police stating that no evidence of foul play has been found.
