Kygo swings for the fences with his just-released, new collaboration featuring posthumous vocals from one of the world’s most beloved and successful musical icons.

The Norwegian dance-pop crossover talent put his signature island-vacation sound to Whitney Houston‘s cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood hit “Higher Love.” A one-listen, instant reminder of the departed songstress’s brilliance, the triumphant vocals were originally recorded live in Tokyo in 1990 and recently provided by the Houston estate and released to the public less than 24 hours ago courtesy of RCA Records

“We knew Kygo would be the right producer to enhance Whitney’s powerful vocal performance on ‘Higher Love’ to the standards and expectations that Whitney’s fans have recognized for over three decades,” the singer’s sisiter-in-law Pat Houston is quoted in a press release. “The resurgence of this precious archival performance will carry Whitney’s musical legacy on to a younger generation for years to come.” Listen to the monster collaboration that is the perfect meld of Kygo and Whitney Houston!
