As explained by Cavazza on a video posted on Facebook, the track was born during a USA tour with Tim; they reached a point where the track was ready to be played at Ultra Miami and so Avicii gave a spin during his set. Chance happened that Kygo heard the song from that exhibition and “just felt special.“ As explained by Kygo on the same video, his dream was to directly collaborate with Tim and Forever Yours“it felt the closest he could get to collaborate with Tim.”
Even if the track is a tribute to Avicii, the two producers have tried to be more accurate as possible, keeping the original vibes that Tim injected in it. You can definitely feel the incredible Avicii’s composition skills in the melodic theme. Even if the vocal sounds melancholic and sad in a way, it doesn’t mean that the track could not sound happy. As explained by Kygo, they’ve tried to transmit hope through the track.
Surely, Kygo and Sandro Cavazza have done an amazing job delivering such a masterpiece in memory of Avicii and his legacy.
