Avicii's collaboration with Coldplay's Chris Martin looks set for a posthumous release.

The song 'Heaven' was thought to have been recorded a few years ago for Avicii's True Stories album but ultimately not included.

Avicii's co-producer Carl Falk posted a photo on Instagram over the weekend, now deleted, that showed him working on the track.

Carl captioned the post: "Yesterday was a strange and emotional day in many ways trying to finishing these songs. It's not the same producing without you by my side. I miss you hanging over my shoulder doubting every little thing and detail in the song. #avicii #heaven"

Carl produced a number of hits with Avicii, including 'Broken Arrows' and the 2017 single 'Without You'.

The documentary Avicii: True Stories, premiered in October 2017, showed Chris in the studio laying down vocals for the track. Avicii had played the song live a number of times and a studio version leaked and made its way online.

Some of the song's lyrics are particularly heartbreaking given what happened since, including the line: "I think I just died, and went to heaven".
