The path to creating a hit song is never easy, but Avicii sure makes it look that way…

He’s just shared a video on YouTube detailing the “making of” his recent hit “Without You,” featuring vocals from Sandro Cavazza. The video doesn’t really feature any testimonials or explanations for the decisions behind production, but rather document the process as a whole – raw. From the creation of the distinct guitar riff in the build, to the intense vocals from Cavazza, everything is captured.

Once the vocals are done, composes the lead and drop until the project is finally finished… and then they go eat.

Check out the “Making Of” video below, and then scroll down to listen to the final release!
