It's been 10 years since we've heard new music from the late Whitney Houston.  Now, her estate has released a new song from the legend in conjunction with a super producer. Listen inside.

 

In case you ALMOST forgot what a legend sounds like, Whitney Houston is here to remind us, posthumously. 

Producer and DJ, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll - a.k.a. Kygo - just released the new single “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston, who is the most awarded female artist of all time, btw. The single marks the first new Whitney Houston music released in a decade, since 2009’s “I Look To You.”

That voice!

The Whitney Houston estate presented Kygo with the archival recording of Whitney’s version, which was previously released as a Japan-only bonus track on her I’m Your Baby Tonight physical album in 1990. We're told that after hearing the Whitney track, Kygo raced into the studio to turn it out.

Whitney's sister-in-law, Pat Houston, is behind the release.  She said:

“The Estate of Whitney E. Houston and our new partner Primary Wave are delighted with the collaboration between KYGO and WHITNEY. 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 resurgence of this precious archival performance will carry Whitney’s musical legacy on to a younger generation for years to come. Everyone should be ready to dance to this uplifting and inspiring record - a testament to KYGO’s incredible talent, and a reminder of why we fell in love with Whitney from the very beginning!”

Kygo added:

“I was honored when the Whitney Houston estate reached out and presented me with the opportunity to work with one of the greatest female vocalists of all time. I reworked the song from scratch and am really happy with how it turned out!”

“Higher Love” is, of course, a cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood classic, which celebrated its 33rd anniversary on June 20th.

Kygo is set to "perform" this song for the first time this Sunday at PrideFestival Utopia in NYC.
