TRIVIUM Teams Up With Portuguese Singer TOY For "Coração Não Tem Idade (Vou Beijar)"
Trivium have teamed up with Portuguese artist Toy to release a new version of the latter's 2018 track "Coração Não Tem Idade (Vou Beijar)." So how did this unlikely pairing happen? Well, in 2018 Trivium guitarist and vocalist Matt Heafy covered "Coração Não Tem Idade (Vou Beijar)" acoustically on his Twitch channel. Toy caught wind of the cover and ended up joining Trivium on stage in Portugal at the VOA Festival 2019 for a cover of Trivium's "Until The World Goes Cold," with the promise they'd collaborate on something down the line.
Here's what Heafy had to say about the new full-band cover of the track.
"The collaboration between Toy and Trivium has been nothing but unexpected and incredible — every step of the way. From its beginning, starting from a Twitch raid into my channel; into me doing a cover that would soon find itself on Portuguese national radio and national news; into a live duo that created madness not unlike a riot at a festival; then finally into a true, full band cover with a cameo by Toy himself."
Toy, real name António Manuel Neves Ferrão, is a Portuguese folk singer.
