    Thats what I call obsession.

    By the way, does there exist a version where it is Chris himself singing, besides the live version?? It seems to me that if I search on Youtube I end up listening to some other version..

    AVICII PRAISES COLDPLAY’S CHRIS MARTIN IN RECENT INTERVIEW
    KSPENCE

    <time class="updated" datetime="2015-07-17" style="box-sizing: border-box;">JULY 17, 2015

    It’s hard to find a fault in working with Chris Martin. The Coldplay frontman has proven that his vocals are one of a kind, from his work with Kanye West all the way into the world of EDM. Though we first got a taste of how well Chris Martin sounded in Swedish House Mafia‘s remix of “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” a few years back, now we’re starting to see his work as a featured vocalist on Avicii’s new album Stories. It’s already been revealed that their collab is called “Heaven,” but in a recent interview, Avicii went more in-depth about the creative process.

    Chris is one of the most artistic people I’ve ever met. And a perfectionist. We did like, 600 versions of the song and still he’s asking me to tweak the vocals.


    Working with people like Chris Martin, Nile Rodgers, and Mac David have allowed Avicii to gain confidence in his music-making abilities, which we’ll hear plenty of when Stories is released this year.
    The track was co-written by Chris Martin, but Simon Aldred – the singer from “Waiting For Love” with Martin Garrix – is the one performing on this, the most recent version of the track. We will have to wait and see what the final version sounds like, but this surely works to set the stage for Avicii’s upcoming album Stories. We can’t wait.

    Lol, I thought you were about to say something good!

    Well yeah, this song is too EDMish. I kinda like it but not my favorite. ASFOS is much better.

    You can really hear Chris' influence in both of them though :)

    I read that for the time being Chris isn't going to be singing the version that's out there and that he's going to wait until he's made a version that he enjoys.

    according to the avicii fan pages, he has said that there are 2 CM collabs in the lp. but both wanted only one chris vocal. so heaven is written with chris, but features vocals from a singer that avicii has worked with frequently before. no one knows what the other song is yet, but that's the one that supposedly went through "600 versions".

    Yes, because why would you make 600 versions of a vocal recording and then use an entirely different singer? This makes sense.

    Maybe Avicii will leak the demos with Chris on vocals?

    Blubber28: I love that track. I can't believe I never listened to it until just now!
    It's amazing. The vocals are really well done. (Re: post #8)

    This could be going the way that 'The Streets - Dry Your Eyes' went. Chris didn't like the version they made and then it ended up becoming The Streets only. We got to hear it in the end though, via a leak or something.
