David Guetta and MORTEN remix Avicii’s ‘Heaven’

Avicii’s posthumous Tim project has received remix work from Laidback Luke, Tiësto, and now, David Guetta and MORTEN have taken on a rework of the popular antithetic “Heaven,” featuring Coldplay’s Chris Martin. While keeping the memorable melodic structure in place, the edit plays with the arrangement, curating a harder-hitting electro house EDM build with a sharper kick after the drop for a bigger festival feel. The remix debuted at Ultra Music Festival this year. 

This was obviously a special remix for Guetta, as the two worked closely together in the past, collaborating on the instantly recognizable “Sunshine” melody and sharing many of the biggest stages in the world. The French DJ expressed his gratitude to Avicii’s family and on the idea of a remix for his friend.
