Avicii v Brazil World Cup

Move over Ricky Wilson, with your unofficial World Cup song, and your uncool job on ‘The Voice’, and make room for international heavyweights DJ Avicii, Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean and Latin Grammy winner Aleandre Pires, who are collaborating on the Brazil-based football hoo-ha’s ‘real’ anthem via a track titled ‘Dar Um Jeito (We Will Find Away)’.

As the tournament’s closing anthem, it’ll act as the ‘night’ to the ‘day’ that is Pitbull and J-Lo’s World Cup single, ‘We Are One’, and will be sung and spun live by Avicii and friends on 13 Jul at Maracan√£ Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.

Avicii’s manager and collaborator Ash Pournouri, who wrote the damn thing, says: “In Portuguese, ‘Dar Um Jeito’ means to ‘find a way’ around obstacles and impossibilities. With this track, we wanted to send a message of optimism and opportunity with the music and the words”.
