Whitney Houston died February 11, 2012, leaving behind a lifetime legacy and, apparently, some new music for the future. Out today, seven years after her death, is Kygo using her cover of Steve Winwood’s 1986 hit, “Higher Love.”
As Kygo explained in a social post yesterday, Houston performed a cover of the song back in 1990 during her Feels So Right Tour in Japan and re-recorded the song a year later. Though it had been intended for her third studio album, I’m Your Baby Tonight, Houston’s version was never officially released save for as a Japan-only bonus track on the album.
“I’m incredibly honored to have been able to work on this amazing vocal from one of the most legendary artists of all time!” Kygo wrote on social media. “Hope you guys love it as much as I do.”
