A new song with the voice of Whitney Houston has been released for making her first new music seven years after her premature death.
Dozens of years ago, the hit hero I Will Always Love You recorded a cover of Steve Winwood & # 39; s hit Higher Love from 1986, which was remixed by Kygo and released on Friday.
Clive Davis – who signed the talented artist with Arista Records in 1983 – made the announcement on his Instagram page when he released the single from Whitney and the 27-year-old Norwegian DJ.

Big revelation: decades ago The I Will Always Love You hit maker recorded a cover of Steve Winwood & # 39; s Higher Love from 1986, remixed by Kygo and released on Friday
He had bullied the collaboration with a short video on his social media the day before, showing that Houston had performed a cover of the song during her Feels So Right Tour in Japan, in 1990 before re-recording it a year later.
It was originally intended for her third studio album, I & # 39; m Your Baby Tonight released in 1990, but it was never officially released.
From the project, Clive said Rolling stone: & # 39; Then (producer) Narada Michael Walden me & # 39; Higher Love & # 39; steered with the Whitney vocal, we didn't want her to be cover artist at the time. & # 39;
This comes seven years after the singer died at the age of 48 in The Beverly Hilton.
Amazing: Clive Davis had teased the collaboration with a short video on his social media the day before, showing that Houston had performed a cover of the song during her Feels So Right Tour in Japan in 1990 before resuming it one year later take
Kygo was featured in the teaser clip that was posted on Owen's social media when he looked in a drawer at a band with the Japanese performance of Houston in 1990.
He was absolutely enthusiastic about the project as he wrote on social media: & # 39; I am incredibly honored to work on this great voice from one of the most legendary artists of all time!
& # 39; I hope you love it as much as I do. & # 39;
It was revealed last month that a Houston hologram tour is now being made.
The singer's estate revealed plans for the tour in an interview with The New York Times, the unveiling of the project will see the songs I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) and The Greatest Love Of All back on stage.
Whitney & # 39; s original band and backup singers will come together for the tour, along with her brother Gary Houston, who previously provided reserve vocals at her concerts.

& # 39; The hologram has taken precedence over everything & # 39 ;, said Whitney & # 39; s sister-in-law and former manager Pat Houston.
The Whitney estate is now focused on revitalizing the business and image of the late star, after years of rejecting business pitches involving the deceased singer.
& # 39; It's all about timing, & # 39; Pat explained. & # 39; It has been quite emotional for the past seven years. But now it's about being strategic. & # 39;
Last week the estate signed a deal with boutique music and marketing company Primary Music Publishing, an agreement whereby the New York-based company will acquire 50 percent of the estate's assets.
Only the hits: Whitney & # 39; s original band and backup singers will come together for the tour, along with her brother Gary Houston, who previously delivered spare vocals to her concerts
Sources told the New York Times that the deal values the estate for $ 14 million.
Heaven seems to be the limit when it comes to future Whitney-related projects.
Larry Mester, the founder of Primary Wave, said he was already talking to Broadway producers about a musical and a Vegas-like project.
