The video for Avicii’s ‘Heaven’ has been released.
The song was originally recorded with Chris Martin back in 2014
The late Avicii, AKA Tim Bergling completed the final version of the track in 2016.
The “Heaven” video was directed by filmmaker Levan Tsikurishvili, who was also responsible for the ‘Avicii: True Stories’ documentary.
It’s a vivacious and beautiful tribute to the producer and DJ who died tragically in April of last year.
The footage was captured on the Ile Sainte-Marie, Madagascar, where Tsikurishvili and Avicii spent lots of time together . It features some unseen snippets from ‘True Stories, in conjunction with some new footage, as well as content taken from Tsikurishvili’s smartphone.
In a statement about the video, Tsikurishvili said:
“I have been working with Tim since about 2013. During these years, we made 8 music videos, 3 concert movies and 2 documentaries together. In 2016, right after his last show, Tim, Tim’s childhood friend Awat, and I spent 19 beautiful days in Madagascar, Ile Sainte-Marie. We spoke about everything, laughed, played monopoly, hung out with lemurs, and explored the entire island together. Now, two-and-a-half years later, I returned to the island to remember Tim, to honour his legacy, and to recreate the memories that will stay with us forever.”
