Nicky Romero Shares Unreleased Avicii Record With Vocals From Chris Martin: Watch

When Billboard reached out to Nicky Romero in the wake of Avicii's passing, we learned that the collaborators and friends were still sharing files. They'd last spoken about a month before the 28-year-old producer was found dead.

During Romero's recent set at Kingsland Festival in Amsterdam, he decided to honor his "I Could Be the One" co-creator by playing out one of Avicii's unreleased songs, "Heaven," which sounds like it features vocals from Coldplay's Chris Martin. It's a big, bold anthem with a cheerful melody in line with Avicii's style. The crowd reacts positively in a fan-made video, holding lights up in the sky.

Listen to the live recording of "Heaven" below.
