Coming just this Friday the 24th, Kygo has seemingly finished ‘Forever Yours’, a collaboration between the late Avicii and Sandro Cavazza. Kygo has been playing his version publicly for some time, most notably at the tribute concert.
After Avicii’s ‘TIM’ album and then multiple remixes from fellow artists, this is the most recent piece of posthumous music we have received.
In Sandro’s announcement post, he went in depth with the development and now release of the track;
This version of Forever Yours is a Tribute to Tim that me and Kygo have put together to honor what he has meant to both of us. The music we made together has changed my life and my perspective of music. He was Kygo’s biggest Idol and biggest inspiration and that’s what has made this Tribute possible.
We’re releasing this song together with Tim’s family and the proceeds from the track will go to the nonprofit Tim Bergling Foundation which benefits organizations that support mental health issues, suicide prevention and education, wildlife conservation and other issues that Tim had an interest in and passion for.
On the pre-save website dedicated to the track, some backstory on the inception of “Forever Yours” was shared:
During a trip across the US in 2016, Sandro Cavazza played Tim an early version of “Forever Yours.” Heading towards Avicii’s show at Ultra Miami, Tim immediately started working on it on the tour bus and played a demo at the festival. The song was never completed or released while Tim was alive, but now Kygo and Sandro have together produced a version to honor his memory.
