Avicii's long-time collaborator, Carl Falk, has revealed that he is working on a number of unreleased songs by the 'Wake Me Up' hit-maker, including one with the Coldplay frontman.

"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 posted on Instagram alongside a picture of the mix on his computer. The post has since been removed.

Swedish site Aftonbladet had previously reported that the EDM star left behind nearly 200 tracks when he passed away. As per reports in mixmag, Neil Jacobson was the president of Geffen Records and also Avicii's A&R executive claimed that the tracks which Avicii was working on before his death were in fact "his best music in years".

Avicii's family had confirmed he took his life under the stress of an unrelenting industry in Muscat, Oman on 20 April.
