    “Tough Love,” the second track from Avicii’s Tim, an upcoming album of the late DJ’s material, has been released.

    The single, which features vocals from Swedish singer Agnes, was co-produced and co-written by songwriting duo Vargas & Lagola, aka Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir. The pair had previously worked with the Swedish EDM superstar on hits like “Hey Brother,” “Silhouettes” and “Without You.”

    A behind-the-scenes looks at the making of the track preceded the song’s release. “One of the most important things with finishing the songs [was] to be as close to the demos as possible, and that was [Avicii’s] family’s wish,” Pontare said in the video.

    “Tough Love” follows last month’s “SOS,” featuring Aloe Blacc. Listen to the new release here:
