Kygo & Sandro Cavazza Pay Tribute To Avicii With New Release ‘Forever Yours (Avicii Tribute)’

During a trip across the US in 2016, Sandro Cavazza shared the early stages of the track with his friend, the beloved and acclaimed DJ/producer/musician/songwriter and performer Tim “Avicii” Bergling. Tim immediately started working on the track, but never got the chance to finish it before he tragically passed away. Inspired by Tim’s demo version played at Ultra Music Festival, Kygo and Sandro have together produced a version to honour his memory. The single release of ‘Forever Yours (Avicii Tribute)’ will shortly be followed by a full length video where Kygo and Sandro Cavazza talk about the process of arriving at the final version, what Tim and this song meant to each of them.
