Forever Yours: A Touching Tribute to Avicii
KYGO AND SANDRO CAVAZZA PAY TRIBUTE TO AVICII WITH SINGLE ‘FOREVER YOURS (AVICII TRIBUTE)’
Cavazza and Avicii Work Together
In 2015 Sandro Cavazza started working with Tim. The duo was top lining and co-writing songs for 2015’s Stories album (Sunset Jesus, Gonna Love Ya). Additionally, in 2016, Sandro was asked to join Tim on a bus tour, driving across the US going through national parks. Likewise, the group began writing music along the way and finally ending the tour in Miami for Tim’s show at Ultra Festival.
“We wrote many songs during that trip, including ‘Without You’ in the back of a bus, but also songs that were premiered at Ultra when we arrived there for the show.” Sandro Cavazza
“I had shown it to Tim two days before starting the tour and Tim had come up with an incredible first demo that he asked me if he could play at Ultra. That was four years ago and I’ve lost a friend since. This version of Forever Yours is a tribute to Tim that me and Kygo has put together to honor what he has meant to both of us. He was Kygo’s biggest idol and his biggest inspiration and that’s what has made this tribute possible” Sandro continues.
Kygo and Forever Yours
When Tim passed in April 2018, Sandro reached out to Kygo to see if he would want to put together a version of Forever Yours as a tribute to Tim. The song would honor what he had meant for both of them. For Kygo, it was a realization of a goal for the DJ/producer.
“When Sandro sent me that song, I felt like that was the closest I could get to collaborate with Tim” Kygo
