New Whitney Houston Song Released Seven Years After Her Death

Whitney Houston has no shortage of iconic songs to belt along with — "I Will Always Love You," "How Will I Know?", "I Want To Dance With Somebody," the list goes on and on.

Now, seven years after her death in 2012, a new song has been added to that list.

The track 'Higher Love' was considered a lost recording.

Whitney's cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood song was recorded originally for her third album, I'm Your Baby Tonight but ultimately wasn't used as Whitney wanted her album to sound more R&B.

It was only available on the Japanese edition of the album.

"Higher Love" was released as a bonus track on the Japanese version of I'm Your Baby Tonight, but Whitney only ever performed the track live a few times in 1990.

The track has recently been uncovered.

Kygo, the producer behind the tracks "Firestone," "Not Ok," and "It Ain't Me", has remixed the recording. This official release of "Higher Love" marks the first archival piece of music by Whitney Houston since her death.

You can listen to the song right here.

"Higher Love" was released on June 28th on all streaming and digital download formats.
