Whitney Houston and Kygo are giving us all the Friday feels with this banging remix of Higher Love - a cover that Houston recorded in the early 90s but was never officially released. 

Houston recorded a version of Steve Winwood's Higher Love in 1991 after performing it live at a concert in Tokyo the previous year. It remained unreleased except as a bonus track on the Japanese edition of her album I'm Your Baby Tonight.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine music mogul Clive Davis, who is credited with discovering Houston, explains why the track wasn't released at the time of its original recording. 

"When [producer] Narada Michael Walden sent me Higher Love with the Whitney vocal, we didn't want her being a cover artist at that time.

"The only place it was released was as a bonus cut in Japan."

Seven years after her tragic passing, Houston's estate has worked with super-producer Kygo to refresh the track and release it as the first of many forthcoming projects celebrating her musical legacy

Speaking about the collaboration, Pat Houston, who doubles as the sole executor of Whitney's estate told Rolling Stone: "Kygo was the first person that was mentioned. He put his spin on it and did a fantastic job."

Sharing the uplifting dance track to his 3.6 million Instagram followers Kygo said: "I'm incredibly honored to have been able to work on this amazing vocal from one of the most legendary artists of all time!"

Higher Love was originally released by English singer Winwood in 1996, reaching number 13 in the UK charts and number one in the US.

Earlier this year, Houston's estate announced plans for a hologram tour, with dates to be released soon.

At her peak, Houston was considered one of the greatest singers ever thanks to hits including How Will I Know, I Will Always Love You and I Have Nothing.
