The director of the documentary Avicii: True Stories, Levan Tsikurishvili, released a moving tribute to his late friend Avicii in the form of a music video to his track with Coldplay's Chris Martin, "Heaven."

In a statement, the director spoke on the significance of his relationship with Avicii and why making this video was so important to him. He wrote:

"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, Île 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."

In the video description, Tsikurishvili explains that the footage comes from a series of personal smart phone videos alongside unused content from Avicii: True Stories

"Heaven" by Avicii Ft. Chris Martin of Coldplay is out now. It is included on his posthumous album TIM released earlier in the month.
