Avicii’s death happened almost one month ago and many artists made songs in his honor. The most recent came from HILDA, who collaborated with Don Diablo to finish the song.
This music started to be made during the day when we known about the sad news, and was completed in the morning after. The track with the name “Wake Me When It’s Quiet” found it’s way to Don Diablo through a friend in como, and the dj decided that he want to participate in this tribute.
“It came together the morning after we got the tragic news. Being one of our generation’s greatest icons and inspiring millions of people from all over the world… the shocking news shook us at our very core. Knowing Don shared exactly the same emotions, it felt natural to collaborate with him on this song.”
And Don Diablo said:
“When I listened to it the first time it touched me deeply in so many ways. As artists, the best way to express our emotions is through music so I locked myself up in the studio and was determined to walk out with something magical that would do justice to the sincere message of the demo and the incredible talent of HILDA. I truly felt this song needed to get heard. So many people are struggling with mental health problems and we have to make sure to never turn a blind eye to this.”
The profits from this song will be donate to Tilia and other mental health charities.
