Avicii’s hit track ‘Hey Brother,’ from his 2013 album True, has reached an impressive milestone, surpassing a billion streams on Spotify.

This achievement makes ‘Hey Brother’ the fifth track by Tim ‘Avicii’ Bergling to reach this accolade, joining the ranks of ‘Wake Me Up,’ ‘The Nights,’ ‘Waiting For Love,’ and ‘Without You (feat. Sandro Cavazza).’ This milestone further solidifies Avicii’s legacy as a monumental figure in electronic dance music, showcasing his enduring impact on the industry.

To commemorate this moment and thank fans for their unwavering support, a special video interview with ‘Hey Brother’ vocalist Dan Tyminski has been released. Additionally, recorded in Stockholm in December 2023, the interview coincides with the day the song reached a billion streams on Spotify. Here, Dan Tyminski, an American bluegrass singer-songwriter with over thirty years in the music industry and 14 Grammy wins, shares his experience working with Avicii and his admiration for him as a producer and musician.

In the interview, Tyminski reflects on how collaborating with Avicii on ‘Hey Brother’ allowed him to reach a global audience. Describing the experience as a divine intervention, he likens it to “a beam coming out of heaven and dropping this beautiful, amazing song.” Encouraged by his daughter, a fan of Avicii’s music, Tyminski highlights ‘Hey Brother’ as a career-defining moment and praises Avicii as “the superstar” who connected deeply with audiences worldwide.

Avicii first introduced new music from True during his highly anticipated set at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Initially, the live band performing bluegrass and soul-inspired tracks surprised fans, a stark departure from Avicii’s previous hits like ‘Levels.’ However, the risk paid off, with ‘Wake Me Up’ and ‘Hey Brother’ becoming fan favorites. The interview includes footage from Ultra Music Festival, where Tyminski reminisces about performing with Avicii, with his daughter watching from the audience.

This milestone not only celebrates Avicii’s musical genius but also highlights the timeless nature of his work. For more on Avicii’s legacy and to watch the full interview with Dan Tyminski, visit Spotify and enjoy the timeless classics that continue to inspire fans worldwide.
