Following the release of Avicii's posthumous album, 'Tim' earlier this year, the music video for 'Heaven', his collaboration with Coldplay's Chris Martin, has been released and it's very emotional to watch. The video starts with an introduction from director Levan Tsikurishvili who has worked with Avicii since 2013, making eight music videos, three concert movies and two documentaries together.
After Avicii's final show in 2016, Levan, Avicii and another childhood friend spent nearly three weeks on the beautiful tropical island of Madagascar. In this video, Levan returns to the island to honour Avicii and create more memories.
As the song starts, viewers get to see footage of Avicii and his friends on the beautiful island, following them as they go quad-biking, relaxing on the beach and kayaking. You also get to see them play games, hang out with lemurs, and explore the entire island together.
WATCH: Avicii and Chris Martin's 'Heaven' tribute video
'Heaven' was recorded by Avicii and Chris Martin back in 2014, with Avicii producing the final version of the song in 2016.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, sadly passed away in April 2018. A year later, his family have worked with his former collaborators to produce an album called 'Tim'. All the net proceeds from 'Tim' go towards the non-profit Tim Bergling Foundation. This foundation benefits organizations that support mental health issues, suicide prevention and education, wildlife conservation and other issues that Bergling had a passion for.
'SOS' a collaboration between Avicii and Aloe Blacc was released in April this year, after it was said to be almost finished at the time of the DJ's death. Late last year, the singer previously explained, "There are several songs left. I believe the record label is working with his parents and the estate to find a way to bring these unreleased songs to the public. But for me there’s no rush – I would leave that with his parents."
