music news 12/09/2019

Last week the late great Avicii would have celebrated his 30th birthday.

In memory of his friend and frequent collaborator, Aloe Blacc has released a song titled “Things You Left Behind”.

The heartfelt track portrays a strong message - I wish you would have opened up enough to see how much you were truly loved.

“The news of his passing stunned me as it did all who were moved by his music and I am terribly sad that he is no longer with us," Blacc wrote on Instagram. "When I heard he was gone my heart immediately went out to his family and the words to this song came to me.”

Blacc collaborated with Avicii for his first posthumous release, and the two famously linked up for 'Wake Me Up', one of the producer's best loved songs.

RIP Avicii.
