Unreleased track written by Avicii to be included on country artist Cam’s new album
Country music had a less than distant linkage to Avicii, who single-handedly shook up the electronic landscape when he melded the genre into his own sound for the first time on his debut album, True, in 2013. Between his studio debut and his passing in April of 2018, Avicii built a trove of both finished and unfinished music that the superstar Swedish producer left in the vault—now, more of that unreleased material is about to see the light of day.
In an interview with RADIO.com for the ACM Awards, country artist Cam, who had previously worked with Diplo on his country debut, revealed that she and Avicii had previously worked together on the title track from her upcoming album, The Otherside. Although the track wasn’t finalized prior to Avicii’s passing, Cam still sought out to complete it and see through her time spent with the late icon, stating,
“I got to co-write with Avicii before he passed away on this incredible song that I’m obsessed with. I felt like I had to get this right for his taste, and how much of a perfectionist he was and also just for his family and his legacy. I’m so proud of how it all came together.”
Cam’s forthcoming project, The Otherside, is due to be released October 30. Watch her discuss the titular track, co-written by Avicii, below.
