Stockholm – November 17th, 2015 – Wyclef Jean has teamed up with Avicii for his latest single “Divine Sorrow”. Following up on their collaborative efforts for the 2014 World Cup closing anthem, alongside Carlos Santana, “Divine Sorrow” is the first single from the Grammy award-winning artist and producer’s impending seventh studio album, Clefication, scoped for release in 2015 via Heads Music/PRMD.
Recorded in Stockholm and premiered by the duo at Ushuaia Ibiza back in August, “Divine Sorrow” marks the next musical chapter for Wyclef Jean, who made his name alongside the Fugees and subsequently established a career as an award-winning solo-artist. As part of Coca-Cola and (RED)’s campaign efforts to raise AIDS awareness, this track brings together two influential forces from very different backgrounds, once again crossing the boundaries of electronic music while bringing a worthy cause into the spotlight.
Featuring Avicii, “Divine Sorrow” is co-produced by manager Ash Pournori, as well as Magnus Lidehäll, Vincent Pontare, and Salem Al Fakir. This release comes after the announcement that Wyclef will be a featured collaborator on Avicii’s upcoming album, #TRUE, which will drop in 2015.
