Avicii made '600 versions' of Chris Martin collaboration

Avicii has revealed that he made over five hundred different versions of his recent Chris Martin duet.

The Swedish DJ teamed up with the Coldplay man for the new track 'Heaven'.

However, he told the Sunday Times that the Brit was such a perfectionist that he had to alter the tune hundreds of times.

Avicii said: "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."

The 'Wake Me Up' star meanwhile said in the same interview that global success isn't the most important thing in his career.

The Swede added: "The most gratification I get is acknowledgement from musicians who know about song-writing. Chart success is one thing. But it wasn't until recently - honestly - that I really believed I was musical.

"It took other people to tell me - Chris, Nile Rodgers, Mac David. That's been my biggest dream come true."

Avicii's new album 'Stories' meanwhile will be released on September 25.
