Earlier this morning, Coldplay surprised fans by unveiling a brand-new single entitled “Midnight“! The track is the first taste of new material we’ve received from the British foursome since they started working on their as-yet-untitled sixth studio album, which is expected to arrive later this year via Atlantic Records. “Midnight” is a surprising departure in sound for the group with its ambient electronic soundscape and Bon Iver-esque vocoder effects. It’s definitely a strange one, so it should be interesting to see how fans react to their more experimental side – I’m certainly intrigued by it all. The accompanying video, directed by Mary Wigmore, is just as strange with its spooky inverted silhouettes of the band larking around in the woods. It isn’t my favorite thing they’ve done but watch/listen below and judge for yourself.
