    Norwegian hitmaker Kygo has teamed up with Swedish singer-songwriter Sandro Cavazza to complete “Forever Yours,” a previously unreleased Avicii track.

    As EDM.com notes, Avicii—real name Tim Bergling—initially previewed “Forever Yours” at Ultra Music Festival, two years before his death in 2018. In an accompanying clip chronicling the song’s creation, Cavazza said that he and Avicii had originally worked on the demo together before he enlisted Kygo to help him finish the track.

    “One of my biggest dreams was to get in the studio with Tim,” Kygo says in the clip. “Unfortunately we never, you know, got to do that. So when he (Sandro) sent me that song I felt like that was the closest I could get to collaborate with Tim.”

    In a tweet, Cavazza said that all the proceeds from the track will go towards the Tim Bergling Foundation, in support of mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
