A new video was released today on his Youtube channel showing behind the scenes of Avicii – Tough Love ft. Agnes, Vargas & Lagola production.

The video, a mix of interviews with Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir (AKA Vargas & Lagola) and footage recorded at the time of production of the piece shows Tim Bergling producing the piece “Tough Love” in the studio.

The duo explained that the track was 80% finished at the time of Avicii’ death in April 2018 and features vocals from Pontare and his wife – award winning Swedish singer/songwriter – Agnes after they were asked by Tim’ family based on the messages Tim’ sent when we was working on the track.


” 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 ! ”

– Avicii

The producers explained later that the track features a melodic passage inspired by Bergling’s time spent studying the music of northwest India.


” Oddly enough, the Indian influences fit perfectly into a song we were working on, something that was so typical of Tim. He was a melodic genius. ”

– Vincent Pontare


The track will be released next 9th May 2019 at 00.00 CEST Friday on Avicii Recordings AB, under exclusive license to Universal Music.
