Avicii And Wyclef Jean Team Up For ‘Divine Sorrow’ To Help Fight AIDS

The recently revived Avicii has joined forces with Haitian singer Wyclef Jean in the fight against AIDS with a new collaboration titled Divine Sorrow.

Divine Sorrow features mostly minimal production from Avicii, with a brief buildup and burst of upbeat synth and pounding percussion, while Jean provides a driving guitar arrangement and soulful, heartfelt vocals. The uplifting pop anthem was recorded for (RED), an organization founded by Bono to help combat AIDS. The song comes as part of a month-long campaign, entitled Share The Sound Of An AIDS-Free Generation, that hopes to end the mother-to-child transmission of HIV.

Divine Sorrow is available for purchase on iTunes here, with a portion of the proceeds from each download going to charity. Avicii, (RED), and Coca-Cola are also running a promotional campaign that rewards donators with special incentives like autographed Avicii memorabilia and a chance to win trips to electronic music events around the world.
