Not long after Avicii's team released "Tough Love" in the months leading up to the posthumous album on which it appeared, Tiësto tested out his remix of the song on an audience at EDC Japan. Now that TIM has arrived in full, so has the Dutch superstar DJ/producer's remix.

Tiësto (real name Tijs Verwest) took Agnes' iconic vocal and fitted it with a lead synth melody sure to send a thousands-deep festival crowd into motion. It's all too common for a remix to sound sonically disjointed, but Verwest's rendition of "Tough Love" sounds like the vocal had been delivered with his sound design aesthetic in mind.

After the untimely death of Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) in April of last year, it came to light that the Swedish DJ/producer had nearly completed a new album. His family worked alongside his final collaborators to finish TIM while adhering as closely to his creative vision as possible.
