Avicii might be retiring from touring, but he’s far from done with making music. The Swedish producer teased a new track earlier this week that he made with his childhood friend Otto Knows, and now the lyric video for the song has arrived online a day ahead of its official release.
As the first new song from Avicii since Stories, and the first and only track that he’s ever been featured on, “Back Where I Belong” is a pretty big deal for fans of the DJ. Featuring an unknown vocalist (though it’s rumored to be Bebe Rexha), the lyrics of the song clearly reflect where Tim Bergling is at in his life, making it a fitting release for him to put out at this time.
Main stage friendly and featuring those infectious melodies that Avicii is so well known for, “Back Where I Belong” marks a return to form for him and is yet another strong effort from his pal Otto Knows. Boasting emotional vocals and shimmering synths, the track is a powerful dance anthem that will no doubt find its way into numerous sets at festivals around the world this summer.
