Avicii’s label has just released the new video for his track “Tough Love” ft. Agnes, Vargas & Lagola.
Vargas & Lagola (Al Fakir and Pontare) are longtime Bergling collaborators and worked with him on “Silhouettes”, “Hey Brother”, “Without You” and more. In the Spring of 2018, after Tim had been exploring music from northwest India, he played a melody loop for the two. “Oddly enough, the Indian influences fit perfectly into a song we were working on, something that was so typical of Tim” says Vincent Pontare. “He was a melodic genius.”
Notes that Avicii left behind on the track noted:
“This one needs to be a duet. Coolest thing would be a real couple. Or a couple that have worked together enough to be almost considered a couple!”
The track was around 80% complete at the time of Bergling’s death and Tim had requested that Vargas’ wife, Agnes provide the track vocals.
Give it a listen below:
Avicii’s net proceeds from the album will go to the non-profit Tim Bergling Foundation and the purposes it will work for, among other things, to prevent mental illness and suicide.
