The Afrikaans singer released a teaser clip of the track on her Facebook page this week.

Judging by the song's lyrics, it is clear Joost still holds a special place in Amor's heart. 

"I didn't want to lose you", "I want to wrap my arms around you" , "I've always loved you", she sings on the song. 

Joost passed away in February last year after losing his battle with motor neuron disease. 

Her new album, which drops in March, is likely to be one of her most personal to date.
