Avicii released 12 new tracks the producer had been working on prior to his death under the album TIM earlier on this month. Both new and old, the song “Heaven” was originally recorded with Chris Martin from Coldplay in 2014.
After Avicii passed away, his videographer Leven Tsikurishvili has created a tribute video based on their trip in Madagascar, with “Heaven” being the soundtrack.
Read below to see what Tsikurishvili had to say about the tribute:
“About the tribute video: My name is Levan Tsikurishvili and 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, ll Saint 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 honor his legacy, and to recreate the memories that will stay with us forever.
Note: This video is a collection of my smartphone videos plus some parts of unused material from the documentary Avicii: True Stories and newly shot footage. I also did some 3D animations in order to recreate the moments that I did not have any video material from”
